love your suggestion, seth. it echoes with tiff’s comment to start one, right where i am…
The kingdom of God is like a flash mob
if Jesus were around today, i wonder if He’d compare the Kingdom of heaven with flash mobs:
- they come out of nowhere
- starts small
- rather odd
- but very intriguing
- contagious (and this is where i betray my lack of flash mob
knowledge), getting others in the crowd to catch the vision (well,
probably the mob is scattered throughout the greater mob)
- initially members of this mob blend in but eventually distinguish themselves
- people take notice
- some are impacted, changed for good
- others just pass by, obliviousi wanna see an actual Kingdom flash mob. like someone were to be
sick. and out of nowhere God’s people rise out of the woodwork, lay
hands and pray and God answers with healing.
This hallelujah! occasion tears me up every time I see it. Thanks for posting it, Seth. The post-Christmas re-viewing is highly appropriate.
And yes, serving our Lord in this flashy way is a strategy for present and future development. We’ll work on it wherever we are and wherever we go.
My wife Pat, Katie’s mother, is in Haiti now flushing the cholera out of people. It’s a flush-mob, not unlike a flash mob.
Your sharing the video of this glorious event has already made my Monday a great day, even at 7 a.m. Merci beaucoup!
I believe you’re on to something…
I like that, I spent the next two hours looking at flash mobs that have been put on and people’s reactions to them. It seems many people smile and are warmed up. I also like your idea of putting one on to share the Gospel but I think we need that here too (at home)…
Hmm…sounds like something to do locally with the youth in their subculture. Great idea!
Thanks Seth…Whenever anyone who follows Jesus connects with others sharing that same passion the genesis of a flash mob is there. Love is the ignitor.
