So we've been thinking a lot about 24-7 Canada's purpose...or vision or what have you....
I mean we know the vision, we know the big ethereal ideas about why we are. But at some level - they are the same as every other Christian organisation....and really as every other Christian. When I have planted things, home church, youth church...I really resonate with the word Reach. We have used it lots - in fact we figured that the whole of Christian life can be summed up this way - "reach up, reach out." That's it - pretty simple. Love god, love people. You get it. So what is 24-7 about - should we just say... 'live more like a Christian," and then....do we really need another organisation doing that?

So we've been asking the Lord what we're about - really about. Do we have a role in Canada....do we have a voice, and if we do - what is it. And we're getting somewhere. Really getting somewhere - I feel like we're hearing from God - not just voicing our opinions.So....I'm not saying anything yet....but in the midst of our discussions I have felt really clearly two things...

1. Strategic obscurity - keeps resonating with me. Maybe just because it sounds cool....
2. "the importance of the Lord commanding His blessing is more important than you operating in your gift"

Any thoughts out there?
