In my sermon on Sunday (scroll to the bottom to listen to the full sermon), I closed with a challenge to the congregation. In light of Jesus' teaching on "Superficial Religiosity" (Matthew 6:1-6; 16-18), I challenged the congregation to try the following for the next month. For 30 days, we are going to try to put these into practice without drawing attention to ourselves or seeking to be uber-spiritual. We are doing it with the sole purpose of growing in our relationship with God and seeking a revival in our congregation for a deep faith - one that goes beyond superficial religion to a dynamic embodiment of the kingdom.
3-2-1 Challenge (30 days)
3. Pray the Lord’s Prayer 3 times a day for the next 30 days
2. Make 2 significant contacts per week that build community
1. Fast for 1 day each week and give away the money saved
