As we reflect on the close fo our series “Intersect | Culture” that we’ve been doing on Wednesday nights, here are two great quotes that summarize what we’ve been talking about well.

I believe that today God is calling us in the church to become a different kind of movement, known for our kisses of compassion (a reference back to the story of the Prodigal Son) rather than our condemnations.

From its first moments, the church has held the promise of being an expression of God’s presence on this earth.  No other entity has greater potential to bring about real and sustainable change for good, whether we’re talking about individual lives or the world at large.

quotes taken from “The Monkey and the Fish” by Dave Gibbons

As we intersect with the cultures around us – the cultures we all live and move within every day – may we be found as a people who speak words of love, who act in love, who really love, and are willing to tell others of the greatest love anyone has ever known.  This is exactly what will start a new revolution!
