(This is) How Family Works
Do you know how some in the Family have just responded? They gave the Simple Way the keys to their building, and said, “It’s yours now, because you need it.” The remarkable part is that the gift house is actually located just a couple of blocks from the burnt house on Potter Street.
Adventures in Mission literally gave one of their houses away.
I’m sort of scratching my head about the whole thing. And it’s not just because I’m stunned by the generosity of these beautiful people, because radical sharing is how God’s Family works.
I’m also raising my eyebrows at the fact that it was just yesterday that I was first introduced to Adventures in Mission. I interviewed my friend Liza at the California Pizza Kitchen for an assignment in our course on Organizational Dynamics, and she told me what she loves about being a board member for AIM. I’m most impressed that they are a group of people committed to the emerging culture, hospitality, and “listening” prayer. Oh, and outrageous generosity.
It seems this is a group I ought to get to know.
