Jesus in his prayer to the Father says in John 17:18, "As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world."  We are all sent by God as missionaries into our communities.  My definition of a missionary is some who is willing to forsake everything but the Gospel for the sake of the Gospel. We are all sent into our neighborhoods to be tangible examples of the Kingdom of God as examples of mercy, justice, compassion, love, dancing, partying,   Sunday's myself and a few ODC members went to a laundromat, brought some doughnuts, coffee, drinks and just hung out with the people who came in.  At the same time other ODC members went to a local flea market and walke around and talked with people.  Go sit at a Waffle House bar, hang out at Starbucks, go sit in your local emergency room, to a nursing home, somewhere, but just go!! Those places, those people that go there need your tangible example of Christ. We as Christians need to recover your "sentness" which is at the core of the Gospel and the Christian faith.   

Here is the link day 11 challenge: Day 11: Intentional Prayer & Spiritual Conversations

This Sunday from 10:00am-12:00pm ODC members will again be going to our local flea market and Laundromat.  Contact us is you would like to join us.
