A Celebration of Biblical Discipleship in Public Life
Most of us have been profoundly moved by the public outpouring of mourning for our Queen and the dignity of her funeral. It certainly signifies the passing of one era and the beginning of another. As much as we love the clear message about Jesus that the Queen consistently gave, the powerful words of Justin Welby at her funeral, and the general conversation about an afterlife in which loved ones may be reunited, we know that once life returns to some semblance of normality, the window to talk about spiritual things will slowly close and that the gospel will once again have to fight to be heard.
So let’s make the most of the current opportunity and openness, and also be ready to live distinctively and winsomely in the world in which God has placed us and into which he sends us. Let’s be ready to tell our own ‘better story’, and to be unafraid to talk about our faith, just as the Queen was unafraid to talk about hers.
Mark Greene, who co-authored the pictorial book ‘The Servant Queen and the King She Serves’, will be our guest speaker at our online leaders morning on 9th Nov. I’m very excited to have his bespoke input to our discussion on what it means to be a disciple and disciple-maker in the workplace. I believe his input will help equip both church leaders and those in the workplace. Please do bring your leadership team and anyone from the workplace who is available and wants to learn.
Bringing kingdom values, godly servant leadership, moments of fun, creative solutions, and good news stories of hope to our workplaces will impact them and for many will bring light into dark places. We are called to be the light of the world, just as Jesus was. Let’s learn to be light in our places of work.
