Lucas Bartlett and the worship team started the day leading us into place of complete focus on and celebration of the One we love. It was an incredible privilege to sing and praise God together as one tribe in many languages.
David Wraight continued unpacking Biblical perspectives on our CS Big Ideas, today’s being Partnering. He spoke of our most importance partnership; partnering with God through prayer – communicating and communing with Him. David spoke about calling and purpose, encouraging us in consultation with God and fellow believers, to:
- Discover our purpose
- Determine our values
- Define our strategic priorities
- Consider our non-negotiables
David called us to align with others and other organisations that are aligned with our core purpose and vision. As a tribe we finished by sharing what God had highlighted to us then took time to hear what the Spirit was saying to each one of us through Psalm 139:23. “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Before lunch and an afternoon of fun waves, each of the six regions took time to meet, pray and discuss how to best apply the big ideas to their local community and mission.
