I like things to be easy. I see a good idea and I immediately want to to install it into my ministry here in Portland. I like to cut and paste. It’s easy. It’s also reassuring, because somewhere out there someone else is doing the same thing I’m doing. If the idea fails I can blame someone else.
Sure there are Biblical principles that translate across time and locations, but straight up copying another ministry….that’s way to safe.
What’s our prayer you say? Simply this, ”Lord, what is it you have for THIS ministry THIS year? Show us your heart for the students of Portland.”
I don’t want to just copy another ministry, too easy and to safe.
