I am emerging because...
Bruce Reyes Chow sent out this challenge on Twitter: ""I am emergence" post coming today. Want in? In 140 WORDS or less, blog/FB about it WITHOUT defining by what you are NOT and I'll link back."
I am emerging because:
I love God, through Jesus Christ.
I affirm that Jesus was birth through the Virgin Mary, lived life as a human being, died on the Cross, to take away all humankind’s sin, was buried for three days and rose again on the third.
Jesus ascended and entered the Heavenly realm.
Jesus taught about the Kingdom of God that was, and is.
Jesus is the first-fruit of the bodily resurrection and the New Creation that is, and is to come.
Jesus demolished all walls that divide humankind and there is no longer male/female, slave/free, Jew/Gentile, or us/them.
We are to love all people with the unconditional love of God.
We are to question the status quo as Jesus did and to seek justice.
emerging is the eternal conversation started with God at the beginning of creation and continues today in believers.
