This Sunday: Transforming Money
2 Corinthians 8:1-9
“For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people. And they exceeded our expectations: They gave themselves first of all to the Lord, and then by the will of God also to us.”
– 2 Corinthians 8:3-5

The Gathering Church is learning how to be present to God, connected to one another, and engaged in loving the world.
Unconditional, undeserved, unmerited love and acceptance.
That’s our usual understanding of grace as described in the Bible. As in it is by grace you have been saved. (Ephesians 2:8)
And we really are transformed when we experience God’s gracious love.
But, in the Bible the word ‘grace’ means something even more than that.
It also means ‘power,’ that is the manifestation of God’s power in our lives. God’s power to do the works of God for the sake of others.
