It is good to be home again and I look forward to sharing with you the many experiences and learnings from my trip overseas – just as soon as I get over my jetlag. Thank you for your prayers to be able to speak and hear grace-full truth.
I must tell you that whenever anyone found out I was from South Africa they got all excited and asked me about the World Cup. So one thing is for sure, SA has had a lot of publicity! Well the 2010 World Cup may be over but 2010 is not over! We are only halfway through the year. And I am hopeful that the rest of the year will be a significant time for us at CMM.
To this end I would like to invite you all to another “movie” evening at CMM. On Friday the 30th July we will be showing As it is in Heaven. This is the most beautiful movie I have ever seen! It is a movie about the healing of a community where individuals are loved into loving. I really hope everyone of us will be able to make it. And yes there will be popcorn!
Then on the Saturday 31st July you (yes all of you) are invited to spend the day imagining God’s dream for CMM – hopefully insightfully inspired by As it is in Heaven . We will do this at Erin Hall, Rondebosch. It doesn’t matter if you have just started coming to CMM or whether you have been here for years – everyone is included because the dream of God is in the hands of us all. I trust that as we live life more and more orientated towards fulfilling God’s dream for this beloved world we will be gifted with renewed meaning and refreshed joy. Peace, Alan.
