What happens when 25 leaders come together in one place, then begin to prayerfully imagine God’s future for the church? Amazing things!

Last week was the twice-per-year meeting of the Regional Advisory Council (RAC). These are clergy and laity from across the Africa Region who come to hear reports about what God is doing through the Church of the Nazarene, and to advise the Regional Mission Team on the best way forward. I enjoyed hearing from the Field Strategy Coordinators on exciting developments, stories of courageous Nazarenes who are pushing back the edges of the Kingdom all over the African continent, often in difficult circumstances. Keep praying for our Nazarene leaders as together we continue making Christlike disciples in the nations.

From Amy’s reading

“…the nature of what constitutes a desirable education isn’t that hard to understand. Parents believe it should be about becoming literate and numerate, well-behaved and well-equipped for adult life, employment and future studies, and for fine things like democracy.” – James Tooley, in The Beautiful Tree: A personal journey into how the world’s poorest people are educating themselves (Washington, D.C.: The Cato Institute, 2009), 259

“The disciples were afraid they would drown. But one thing reassured them: Jesus was still in the boat!”
