I love the local church. More specifically I love our local church, Jubilee. It acts as a channel of God’s blessings to me. I feel his presence in our meetings. I enjoy worshipping God there. I learn more about him, and his gospel, and how to live in the light of that wondrous news. I have many many great friends, and I and my family feel truly at home. I have my own part to play, and it provides the main outlet outside of my family for me to serve my saviour. But most of all its a place that is truly all about Jesus, and our church reveals his glory to me in a myriad different ways. I love our church, but Jesus loves every local expression of his bride even more.
Because I am thrilled by what Jesus is doing in the world through his church, I was delighted to hear that Mark Driscoll and Gary Breshears have continued their ubiquitous writing career with Vintage Church. Thanks to the generosity of the folks at The Resurgence, I can offer a number of free copies to readers of my blog.
To have a chance of winning a copy, all you need to do is write a post about any aspect of the Church. If you have a blog, simply write anything you like on the subject of church, and link back to this post so that I can easily track the entries. If you don’t have a blog, then get over to facebook and post your entry on the friends of adrianwarnock.com group. If you are on twitter, tweet me about the church @adrianwarnock for a chance to win.
I will hopefully be able to link to each of the blog posts from this blog and quote from the best tweets and facebook messages. My favorite comments will also receive from the Resurgence a free copy of Vintage Jesus. So there you have it, a challenge to write about the church.
