You may have the heard the song…’We are Young’ by Fun? The chorus goes a little like this…
“Tonight- We are young. So let’s the set the world on fire, we can burn brighter than the sun.”
It got us thinking about our theme. Set the World on Fire. There are many folks talking about how we can change the world and what we each can do to make a difference in our world.
So what drives us as followers of Christ? What encourages and challenges us to be initiators of change? What is the call all about to be salt and light in our world? How do we serve and give to others with a faith perspective?
It’s like the disciples on the road to Emmaus following the death and resurrection of Jesus who were troubled and wrestling with their journey. They met a man on the road and shared their story. He listened to them. He spoke with them and taught them. He shared bread with them after they invited him to join them to stay and eat. It was finally then after the bread was broken that they realized it was Jesus. They said to one another,
“Did our hearts not burn within us?” ( Luke 24:31-35).
That is what we hope to explore this weekend. How do we journey with Christ on the way? How does Jesus teach and challenge us? How do we set the world on fire?
