This Saturday morning at 11:00 in downtown Winter Garden we will have our first of six community prayer events together. This first one will be unique in that it will be more like a “flash mob” than a long prayer gathering. Here are the details:
:: get to the Winter Garden Farmer’s Market and the Plant Street area no later than 10:45am.
:: be listening around 11:00 for the song “Amazing Grace” being played and sung on the median of Plant Street somewhere between the Tri and Run and Axum Coffeehouse.
:: come toward the person playing and singing and join in with him in song.
:: when the song ends, kneel down where you are and begin to SILENTLY pray.
:: the guitarist / singer will then sing “Song to My Family” by Gungor (from their independent release “Ancient Skies” then under the name of “the Michael Gungor Band”). This is a song of confession and challenge and commitment to be the church as Jesus intended together.
:: while he is singing, be silently praying as the Spirit leads you, but please do pray these two things – (1) a confession that we as the local church expressions of West Orange County have not been the church together as Jesus intended, and (2) a commitment that we want to value unity around mission as Jesus prayed we would (John 17:18-23) as well as a request for wisdom as to how we may love the community the way Jesus has loved us.
:: when the song is over, simply disperse quietly back into the normal rhythms of the Farmer’s Market and Plant Street.
Hope to see you there. Involve your kids. Facebook and email and text and tweet it out to invite others that you think would really value this confession and commitment together.
Love y’all. Grateful that we can serve and pray and be the church together to West Orange County and beyond.
