2011 - The table is set!
December 31st, Angela and I transitioned into the new year in style. We joined our American friends Rusty and Janet with two French couples to experience a traditional French multi-course New Year's feast at this lovely place-setting above. We rang out the old year celebrating God's goodness symbolized by a fabulous meal shared with special friends. We rang in the new with an hour of prophetic proclamations for new manifestations of God's Kingdom in our midst.
Rather than staying in the month-long span of time that I usually target in these bulletins, I thought it might be good to spend the first month of this year aiming "higher" so-to-speak...i.e. the WHOLE year! I hold to the principle that nothing happens in the Kingdom of God without a declaration (Thanks Bill Johnson for this great insight!) and I think that this first month of what will be an auspicious year should be liberally showered with faith declarations to plant God's incorruptible seed as deep and wide as possible.
So, join with us (out loud!) in our declarations for 2011. For the first month of this year I plan on daily "seeding" 2011 with Kingdom declarations. I've written them as declarations for the Church in general, but they work for individuals as well...and probably every other size group in between! So feel free to take them for yourself, but go ahead and make some of your own and change the atmosphere around you! (Hey, that's why you're there after all! ;-))
