Jesus said to the disciples, "Be merciful, just as God is merciful. Stop judging, and you will not be judged. Stop condemning, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and gifts will be given to you. A good measure, packed together, shaken down and overflowing will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure, will in return be measured out to you.”

from the Book of Common Prayer

for Ordinary Radicals

Let me hear the sound of your voice
and I will leave it all behind
Let me hear the sound of your voice
and I'll come running

There’s something in the sound of your voice that speaks to every part of me
When I hear the sound of your voice, I'm alive

I was made to love you,
it's all I really know for sure
All I am is wrapped up in you
the center of my world
And I was made to love you,
from my beginning to my end
And you’ll be my forever, my forever amen

Amen, Amen, Amen...

Forever Amen

You will never leave
Your love sustaining me
Before I even knew what love was

You've brought me here to rest
And given me space to breathe
So I'll stay still until it sinks in

I will lean back in the loving arms
Of a beautiful Father
Breathe deep and know
that He is good
He's a love like no other

And you will never leave
Your love sustaining me
Before I even knew what love was

You've brought me here to rest
And given me space to breathe
So I'll stay still until it sinks in

I will lean back in the loving arms
Of a beautiful Father
Breathe deep and know
that He is good
He's a love like no other

Lean Back

What are the gifts or skills you might have that you can use for God's work in the world?

When you look at our target community here in Tulsa, what are some gifts/assets God has already placed there?

Many people belong to a community before they believe. What can we do together and individually to create a sense of belonging for others?

Jesus said to the disciples, "Be merciful, just as God is merciful. Stop judging, and you will not be judged. Stop condemning, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and gifts will be given to you. A good measure, packed together, shaken down and overflowing will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure, will in return be measured out to you.”
