The series we have called “Renaissance” is wrapping up. I think it’s a really good way to talk about this thing that Jesus was constantly referring to and God’s project on the earth called “The Kingdom of God.” We are always looking for new language to talk about and to help us really get this.
This weekend I wanted to focus on how Renaissance is activated in our lives, what that looks like and how it happens. One of the foundational ideas is that Renaissance hasn’t happened until it “ACTIVATION”.
We talked about how a lot of the energies and impetuses we often rely on (“should” kind of things) will never get us to Renaissance. I borrowed a couple of ideas from psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihály who has done some great thinking on the idea of being in “Flow”. Flow is a big part of “renaissance”.

But primarily we have to remember as we closed off, “RENAISSANCE ROLLS IN WHEN JESUS SHOWS UP.”
