London Zoo: Alt worship discussion

londonzoo-thumb Tonight is a special meeting put on by the Headspace people. " The evening is open to all emerging church, alt.worship, faith communities in (Greater) London".

Doodles on Prayer 1.1

room for prayer?
Prayer invites God to make Himself known, to turn up, to gatecrash dreams, to warm up hearts of ice.
Prayer transcodes the atmosphere, introduces Kingdom tones and flavors, re-composites reality, downloads beauty and grace into spaces raw and ready for healing.
Prayer starts the homecoming process, nudging people away from reluctance, situating them on the pilgrim road that leads them to where they should be.
Prayer attunes ears to the voice of God as He unveils his heart for the nations and for the neighbors.
Prayer calls up the people of God, summons helpers from great distances to join in the dance, woos out workers to shoulder the load of harvest-filled bags.
Prayer silences the voices of the night, ties up dark personalites, emasculates the strongman.
Prayer invites God to command all things friendless and isolated to be reconciled, aggregated, reconstituted into harmony with Himself and His passionate desire to have all things under his gentle care .

Virtual Map Emerging

Its been over two weeks since we started building virtual rooms. Jonathon is building a map. Lots of new rooms are popping up also, and we need to have an open house event one night. This reminds me of the early stages of blogging, except it going much faster. Are you also starting a room? Let us know. Lets hook them up. And for goodness sake, somebody please find some OTHER virtual spaces/ Graphical MUDs for us to inhabit. Coming on Tuesday?

St Louis, Missouri. Today.

I think God wants to do something in St Louis, MI this weekend. He has put the city on my mind and heart all week long.
- which is why i tuned into Joy FM, St Louis
- which is how i found out Dave Crowder Band was there
- this morning i got another email from someone in St Louis.
aastlI don't know much about the city. I was there speaking at a conference a few years ago called Search Party 2002, where Len Sweet and I did a 45 minute panel discussion together. I wrote some prophetic poetry beside the Mississippi that i will have to look up.
Anyway, this is a "Blog 4 God" in the truest sense - He wants you to notice St Louis this weekend. Why? To pray? Maybe you should ask Him.


My Oh My

What on Earth is going on in my heart?
as it turns cold to stone...

Seems these days I don't feel anything
Unless it cuts me right down to the bone.

What on earth is going on in my heart?

Cause my oh my you know it just don't stop
Cause in my mind I wanna tear it up
I'm trying to fight trying to turn it off
But it's not enough

It takes a lot of love
It takes a lot of love, my friend
to keep your heart from freezing
to push on til the end.

My oh my!

David Grey (lyrics from My Oh My, White Ladder)
