Do you realize?

Do you realize:

How easy it would be to volunteer your guitar to play songs on the Boston Pizza patio?
How easy it would be to cut your neighbor's grass?
How easy it would be to attend city council meetings and participate in public forums?
How easy it would be to sit on city committee's in relation to your area of expertise?
How easy it would be to be on a community based drama troupe?
How easy it would be to hold a neighborhood barbecue?
How easy it would be to involved in your local elementary school?
How easy it would be to coach a sports team?
How easy it would be to write a blog?
How easy it would be to be a big brother?
How easy it would be to choose your local University or College intentionally?
How easy it would be to feed a hungry person in your own city?
How easy it would be to start a new business that would improve life in your own city?
How easy it would be to buy locally and actually SERVE and BLESS an honorable business?
How easy it would be to speak positively about your church to someone jaded about it?
How easy it would be to become a freelance writer?
How easy it would be to play road hockey with the kids on your street?

Do you realize that it would only take 17 people in ONE church to do ALL of those things. If your church is 150 people... it's a tithe of the people INVESTING in own community.

Do you realize the difference these 17 things would make... when they are done in Jesus name?

Do you realize that if MORE people discovered their own area of influence, SERVED and INVESTED into it... cities would be transformed?

Do you realize that if there were 50 churches or ministries in Brantford/Brant County working together with a "One Church" mindset... who had 17 people each choosing to invest with kindness and intention... that would loose 850 city, community, neighborhood, revolutionary minded people in "city transformation ministry"?

Do you realize that the ebb and flow of our economy (and thus our community) is guided by the "Greed and Fear Cycle"?

Do you realize how necessary it is that this be broken?
Do you realize that we TOGETHER can do it?
Do you realize that fulfilling God's dream for our cities will cost us money, time, control and comfort?
Do you realize that fulfilling God's dream for our cities will only happen if we intentionally CHOOSE to partner with it?

Do you even realize how important a role YOU play in city transformation?
It's time friends...

It's the era of everyone.




"Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws,
we wait for you;
your name and renown
are the desire of our hearts."
Isaiah 26:8
