Understanding and embracing the relational nature of a missional lifestyle is pretty simple--you cant love God if you dont love people and vice versa. By his very nature, God is relationship--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. You cant have one without them all, and to neglect one is to neglect the whole. So it just makes sense that displaying Gods personality to the world would require us to get close to people.
How close? Well, maybe you dont want to know. Close enough to feel their wounds--to hurt when they hurt and laugh when they laugh. Uncomfortably close.
The Art of Mercy is a 6-week lesson series containing short films about getting to the core of what students will encounter when living out the mission of God in your community and around the world. Included in this curriculum is an extensive lesson plan and a student handout for each lesson.
