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.


New Idea #719 in Missional Entrepreneurship: Buddy Bench

Matthew Overton

So, I have a problem. I admit it. Once I started this whole social entrepreneurship ministry thing ideas have crammed my head. I can think of about a thousand ways the church can do ministry through business and social engagement.  Some of them I don't even share because they are so good that I want to keep them for later. The last two nights in a row I have woken up in the middle of the night with dreams related to what I am working on. In both cases I couldn't go back to sleep.  Today, I woke up and saw the above video.  Anybody want to fund a few benches for local elementary schools? Anybody want to start manufacturing one or know someone who can?  I want my students to start installing them.

I know, its a problem. Someone please take this idea off my plate.
