We are forming a group to do coaching with a leader from the Vineyard Justice Network to help us develop and grow healthy,
life-giving mercy ministries through our church.
We invite you to take a fresh look at Jesus’ practices of radical mercy to lead us into new
or deeper ways of pursuing the abundant life for everyone in our communities.
- Learn to do a “mercy audit” to become aware of the shape of your community and imagine ways to engage that are grounded in the love and mercy of Jesus. A mercy audit asks the following questions: 1) How are you getting proximate to your neighbors and key issues impacting your church and city? 2) Who are the people in your church who already neighbor well and can help lead you into mutual relationships? 2) How can you practice radical mercy in a way that invites the Holy Spirit to surprise, confront, and comfort?
- Learn to be an ambassador of mercy in your community. VJN will partner with you and your church community to discover how to respond to key issues such as criminal justice, race, home and food security, and inequity.
It will be a 90-minute session online with a coach once a month for 6 months.
The first meeting is 10/29 from 4:30-6 pm. If this sounds like something you would be interested in
