30/3 Family Challenge
Our schedules reveal what's important to us. What does your schedule say about what's important to you? All of us fall short. Our schedules often reveal us to place sports and other obligations far above meaningful family conversation and prayer. Many of our homes are planets spinning out of orbit because they've lost their center of gravity. They are without the Son.
We can point fingers at the many challenges in this culture, but real renewal has to begin with us. We desire to "become what we are," to more fully discover and radiate the love of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ renewing our families is the heart of the 30/3 Family Challenge. We invite you to "simply" schedule three times a week, for 30 days, a time to talk and pray (based upon subsequent Sunday's readings). We believe this gathered family time will be richly graced. It will ignite the God-alive-in-family "spark" that will make you want to make this your family's scheduled foundation.
As many of us are embracing this adventure and reporting great blessing, we need you to be an encouragement. We need your witness. Swords sharpen swords. We encourage you to give it a chance. Lead your family keeping "first things first." Reclaim your family foundation. It will have more deep and lasting returns than anything else you will ever schedule. You don't need to follow it exactly. Make it your own. And know what great grace flows when we're united this way in prayer and mission.
Heaven begins here. May God abundantly bless you and your family on this day.
