Testimony:  Discipleship as a Lifestyle

Testimony: Discipleship as a Lifestyle

Written by Clay Horton

Through participating in the Epworth project, I began to understand discipleship as a lifestyle. Living by a rule of life helped give my life a holy rhythm. This rhythm began first thing in the morning and continued until bed time. It taught me how to walk through the day in communion with God. The habit of reading scriptures, sharing meals, and praying with the other people in my house brought me closer to God in more ways than words can ever express.

Start With What You Have

Start With What You Have

Written by Tina Carter

From the mission field: "When you are hearing hard stories all the time it makes so much sense to start with what you do have rather than starting with what you don’t have."

Reflection on a Visit to a Missional Micro Community

Reflection on a Visit to a Missional Micro Community

I think the key to New Day, to Missional Communities and Micro Churches broadly considered, lies in Jesus’ statements about the kingdom of God. It is already here, maybe only within us, but then by grace among us. It is about mustard seeds growing under the noses of the establishment. It is not about going toe to toe with empires, secular or religious, any more than Jesus did with his contemporaries. This may be the reason that “the church” must continue to do attractional evangelism, undergirding as much as possible the establishment. All the while, the very same people are doing missional evangelism, out scattering seeds on the wind, letting them land where they may, trusting that some of them will find their way to good soil in which God will produce good fruit (Mark 4). In the process of grafting in, of filling new wineskins, the old vine, the old wine skins are redeemed – all are redeemed together.
