Called to Transform [Beyond Sunday]

Read the story of Jesus and Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10

Big things begin from small seeds. A tax collector can be reformed by dinner. A small group of women in a church basement can become a mission organization with worldwide outreach. You may see your gifts as small, but in them God sees great opportunity. 

Remember a time when you offered a small kindness that was received as a great blessing. 

What actions have had ripple effects in your faith community?

What big work would you like to see accomplished? What small step might begin it?

Small Steps:

  • Set aside 30 days to pray for discernment about where God is leading you now. 
  • Read “Maid” by Stephanie Land
  • Volunteer 10 hours with an organization that works directly with poor or marginalized persons 

Long Strides

  • Commit a year to learning about a broken circumstance in the world (poverty, immigration, polarization, etc)
  • Start a small group to focus on a single issue. Study together, pool money, and offer service together.
