THEME STATEMENT
GATHERING 2017

“For we are God’s poetry.” Eph 2:10

Imagine for a moment, what would it mean for your life if you found out God was a poet?  Did you know that is exactly what Paul is saying as he writes to the Church at Ephesus?  A common translation of Ephesians 2:10 is as follows:

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”  (Ephesians 2:10 NIV)

The word, “handiwork”, is a translation of the Greek, “poiema”.  From “poiema,” we get, in English, “poem”.  In essence, Paul is telling his readers, “For we are God’s poem…” Think of it.  We are God’s poem or poetry, created in Christ Jesus, to do “good works”, or to bring beauty and goodness to all of life as we experience it.  This is God’s purpose for our lives–for each of us and for the Church of Jesus Christ. Oh, what huge implications for us!

Come to the Gathering.  Come to learn, to know and to explore, what it means for you to be the poetic expression of God’s love to the world in your life.  Come to the Gathering. Come to celebrate with sisters and brothers, together, the gift of God’s calling to us, together, to be God’s poetry to and for the life of the world!
