Reflection > Thurs Week 7

Instead of class, we headed to the 2006 Missiology Lectures at Fuller. The general theme in these four lectures over two days was Children and the Mission of God.

In the last lecture by Jude Tiersma Watson, I was struck with her humbleness as she walked though Micah 6:8:

He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

She walked though these things (act justly, love mercy and walk humbly) and tied them together in a call to belong to each other, which we can forget so easily. To be Christians alone and/or be self-serving is contradictory to the life Jesus and the early church lived. We belong to each other. It’s a messy journey, and hard to work out, but I was overwhelmed with the truth of it as I settle into a new living situation and am getting to know the people around me.
