Shattered: How God Is Rescuing A Broken Existence
Creation began in darkness, but it was never intended to remain that way. The first thing that God did was pierce that darkness with a holy light, chasing away shadows and unleashing His creative power upon a universe defined as “good”.
Unfortunately, the glory was short lived.
The rebellion of humanity, the God-ordained stewards of power, invited chaos back into an orderly creation and usurped the divine intent. A world that was once known only as “good” and “very good” now bore the reality of both good and evil, leaving the land cursed and broken, and those God-elected stewards as the recipients of a shattered existence marked by suffering and pain.
But God is not done yet.
This is the story in which we find ourselves – we, the descendents of those first stewards, the children of the rebels, and the rebels ourselves.
It is in the midst of this story that God has begun a powerful work, once again overcoming the darkness of creation with the Light of the World. It is a mission that began in Genesis and has woven itself throughout the pages of Scripture. It is a mission that found its climax with a crucified King, but continues its denouement with the bursting forth of a Kingdom that overturns chaos. It is the story of justice conquering evil, of mercy sating a rebellion, and of love that conquers all.
It is our story, and we all have a role to play.
Over the next several weeks, we are going to explore this story in depth, beginning with the very real images of the people of God at the front lines. We will hear the stories of those on the mission field abroad, of our own mission fields at home, and the realities of justice and what it means to discover a life created with purpose.
Through it all, we will discover what God is doing, has been doing all along, and what that means for you and me.

…because life is more than mere existence.
