Starting from Scratch

Sometimes I think it would be nice to just start over in the church. Just write everything your church does from nursery to classes to youth to services up on a white board and then erase it all. Then let the Holy Spirit tell you what He wants you to write on the board. Will it be the same things, will it be all new things? Imagine how the church in Acts did it. They did not just do it like everyone else has done it for centuries. They had a blank slate and they let the HS write His thoughts down. Maybe they just got together in their houses and let God show up and do what He wanted.

God cannot do a new thing when we keep insisting that He does it within the mundane confines of our preconceived ideas. I want to let it all go and see God's creative power and uniqueness blow my mind. Yeah, I think I'd like that.
