  • After ten years of ministry within the Anglican church, God told me that it was time to go back to the bars and I had already decided that God was calling us to come out of the Anglican Church and take the next step. Hesitantly we, and our four children, left behind our house, income, and congregation to walk a new walk of faith trusting in God’s provision alone. God has opened up a ministry in the gay scene. We have joined together with a small group of similarly minded Christians to form a house fellowship in which we seek to support one another. Another fellowship has formed and this seems to have attracted a number of new Christians along with their seeking non-Christian friends. Our vision is to see organic churches started within the gay scene and in various clubs and pubs throughout Australia. We have a heart to see Christians equipped and released to take Jesus to communities where he is not known and with God’s help to incarnate the Gospel rather than seeking to bring people out of their communities intoour churches.

  • 40A leper came and knelt down before himbegging. “If you want to you are able to make meclean” he said. 41 Moved with compassion, Jesusstretched out his hand and touched himsaying, “I am willing. Be made clean.” 42 Theleprosy immediately left him and he was madeclean. 43 Jesus sent him away with a sternwarning, “See to it that you say nothing toanyone about his but go and show yourself to thepriest and make an offering for your healing ascommanded by Moses as testimony to them. 45But the man left and told everything to everyoneand the story rapidly spread.

  • What has God told us about? [1]1. The morning after he had healed many people from Capernaum who gathered at the house he got up early and went out on his own to pray.2. People had started to arrive at the house wanting to see Jesus.3. Peter and the other three disciples realized that Jesus had left the house and they went looking for him.4. When they found him they told him that people had gathered and they wanted to see HIIM.
  • What has God told us about? [2]5. Jesus told them that he had not come just to spend time with one group of people in one town.6. He said he had come to spread the message in the other towns as well.7. They left Capernaum and, starting with the neighbouring towns he visited all the towns in the region of Galilee.8. In all of those towns he went to the synagogues and preached and also cast out demons as he had done in Capernaum
  • WHAT IF this were happening ? I would not assume that yesterday’s “success” was the plan for today. [no franchise approach] In the midst of experience of blessing from God I would seek after him in prayer to know what to do next to avoid jumping to a wrong conclusion. [relating to God as primary source] I would allow my understanding of his calling on my life to be the guide as to what I should do next. [complete the work of the call] I would go and fulfill that calling using a strategy that was consistent with that calling. [synagogues]
  • what do I need TO DO ? I will do a review of the way I serve Jesus to see if I am just doing what I feel comfortable with or successful at. I will make a point of praying and asking God what I should do as a matter of principle so as not to assume. I will check my priorities and see whether they are reflecting the call or my pride/insecurity etc. I will keep on doing what fulfills that call regardless of whether it might cause trouble or be difficult.
