Reflections…

Snippets of reflections from an anonymous mosaic member…

I’m not http://paviteryshalima.es/buy-hydrochlorothiazide-25-mg-side-effects/ sure if you know but at this point in my spiritual walk, I’m facing a lot of doubts and questions. A lot of this has been stirred by questions …

To http://www.newwinechristiancentre.org/2018/02/15/rogaine-foam-international-delivery/ be honest, I’m not really sure how God has been talking to me lately. In some ways, I feel like He hasn’t been saying much at all. In other ways, I feel that He’s been trying to draw me back to Him, through conversations I’ve had with my family and through things I’ve come to learn. I’ve been wanting to go on a journey of discovery and ‘soul-searching’ by reading up on things, doing some reflecting, etc. The truth is, however, I haven’t started on this journey largely because I’ve been so preoccupied… I know that another reason for this is that I’m a little afraid of the implications of what I may end up finding.

In terms of my thoughts on Mosaic, I don’t feel that Mosaic is helping me all that much in my struggles with faith. I feel that Mosaic is largely geared towards well-grounded Christians and not-so-much unbelievers. I admire the mission-minded focus of our church but at the same time, I do not honestly feel that we’ve achieved what we had set out to achieve two years ago when we started out. And by “achieve” I don’t mean in terms of the size of the congregation or the number of people we’ve sent out on missions, but rather, I’m referring to the http://www.elenalucia.com/cialis-at-walmart-price/ extent to which we’ve become involved with the community. From my understanding, our church is supposed to be more outwardly-focused than the traditional church. And I feel what has happened is that we’ve removed a lot of the “internal” programs characteristic of the traditional church (e.g. Bible studies, Friday Night Fellowships, etc.) but have not expanded our “external” programs (e.g. community service, outreach, etc.) as much as one would expect from a missional church.

At the same time, I do recognize that our church is different from the traditional (Chinese) churches that I’ve come to be well acquainted with, and this is something I truly admire about Mosaic.

these are my thoughts for now. I’m sure there is more I could say but just isn’t coming to mind right now. I really hope I don’t come across as overly critical or anything like that; I just really wanted to use this opportunity to express my personal feelings and give some honest feedback.

    Hi anonymous member…thank you for your honest sharing…i can see why you may feel that mosaic is “more geared towards well-grounded christians” because it’s not easy to let go of the “layman mentality” (taken from ka’s sermon on living the resurrection) and it’s also not easy to follow Jesus (i’m challenged by that all the time as i enter deeper into the Jesus way…it’s not always comforting)…all these make the Jesus’ way seem like something for “well-grounded” christians only (as if only they can handle it…but really “well-grounded” christians can only handle it because the Holy Spirit empowers them…i can testify to it)…you are definitely in my prayers and i’d like to ask that you would also pray that God would empower mosaic as a body of Christ to encourage and support each other on a journey of following Jesus that can sometimes seem so personal (like no one would understand or can support us) but is very much a communal effort

    p.s. sorry about the major run-on and complex sentences…may God be with you!
