Disturb us, Lord, when
We are too pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we dreamed too little,
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, Lord, when
with the abundance of things we possess
We have lost our thirst
For the waters of life;
Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision
Of the new Heaven to dim.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wilder seas
Where storms will show Your mastery;
Where losing sight of land,
We shall find the stars.

We ask you to push back
The horizons of our hopes;
And to push back the future
In strength, courage, hope, and love.

This we ask in the name of our Captain,
Who is Jesus Christ.


Fuller's New Initiative

Matthew Overton

Here is a link to Fuller Theological Seminary's post on a new initiative that they have started due to a generous set of grants from Lilly and another institution. I don't know where all of their project is headed, but it seems very interesting. I have been invited to participate with them in part of this process in February to come down and look at some of their research and also to share about some of the innovations that we are working on at my church in terms of Youth Ministry that Works.  I am very excited to see that there are places like Fuller that are finding ways to create engines for innovations.  We need them! The average youth worker will be hard pressed to work their one job while creating new innovations.  I know this, because I am neck deep in the problem right now!!! Meeting one set of ministerial expectations and traditions while scouting Canaan is a bit tricky!
