Rosalie – 20 February 2022
The growth of the Kingdom of God isn’t defined by how many people come to church on a Sunday morning. It’s not measured by how many hours people spend volunteering. or how many dollars they donate to end hunger, or poverty, or oppression. It’s not measured by how many people say the sinners prayer. And it’s not measured by how many people become less sexist or racist or classist on any given day. I don’t you can measure it at all. It’s like trying to measure a giggle, or the taste of chocolate, or how you feel when your baby smiles for the first time. There are some things that cannot be measured. If growing renewal isn’t something that can be measured, or easily defined, how is it that you can recognise it?
