Organic Outreach
“Organic Outreach is about living the kind of life that naturally draws people to Jesus. it involves speaking the kinds of words that you use in ordinary conversations and that reveal the presence of a loving God. It means loving people in a way that is genuine. Organic outreach is all about sharing our faith in a way that is authentic, real, and feels natural to the people around us.”

2.Morning Prayer

•Jesus, let my eyes see lost people as you do. Give me vision that pierces through the facades and masks, so I can see the depth of people’s lostness. As my eyes see, allow my heart to feel what you feel as you look at a world filled with people who are desperately in need of your love and grace.
