Last Weekend at Westwoods in 21 tweets:

Posted: 11/16/2016 in Uncategorized

We had an incredible weekend around here and I wanted to share some of the main thoughts: So here is Blessed week 2 in 21 tweets:

 From my intro:

  1. No matter who you voted for, we all have to realize the worlds view of what it means to be a Jesus follower is more muddy now than it was a week ago
  1. Let’s remove the words “they” or “them” from our vocabulary all together
  1. Our actions reveal what is important to us way more than our vote does. #itstartswithme

From the amazing teaching of Jessica Richie:

  1. Let’s live upside down with our feet rooted in heaven
  1. We love to give away Bibles around here. It’s the one budget line item we are happy to blow!
  1. God is actually inviting us to live right side up and it is really disorienting
  1. These blessings of Jesus aren’t a prayer or a wish.
  1. These blessings of Jesus aren’t a new set of rules.
  1. These blessings of Jesus are not conditional.
  1. These statements of blessing are God with us
  1. The table of God is open to all of us!
  1. Blessings aren’t what God GIVES us they are God WITH us
  1. You can choose to be a graceRECEIVER and a graceGIVER or a gateKEEPER
  1. God does not live in the oval office – the Kingdom isn’t released from the West Wing
  1. Our God was born in the Middle East of an unwed teenage mother
  1. Jesus was born to the least of these to bring His Kingdom to the least of these
  1. The Kingdom is released through you and me
  1. When we choose love over hate – we are unleashing His Kingdom
  1. When we choose to give a voice to the voiceless – we are unleashing His Kingdom
  1. When we choose to spend time with the least of these– we are unleashing His Kingdom
  1. When we choose to leave the comfort of our privilege – we are unleashing His Kingdom
