As a nation, we’ve just come off of celebrating one of the greatest holidays of the year—Independence Day. Our founding fathers fought long and hard for a nation that would be established on a new idea, a new principle of governance: "One Nation Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.”

But here we are several hundred years later and we’re currently struggling to live indivisible, as one nation. Recently, this struggle was made all to real by the massacre at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC. In a place of refuge, hope, deliverance, love and acceptance—9 brothers and sisters in Christ were shot and killed because of the color of their skin.

Evil has a way of finding its place—even in the church. At times, the church has stood in silence, or worse, allowed ignorance to dissolve its value in God’s people. But it doesn’t have to be that way any longer.

As followers of Christ, we carry the Hope of the world within us—therefore, we’ve had the answer to racism all long.

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”—John 13:34-35

This is evident: People Matter to God, therefore people must matter to us. And because people matter, stories matter. On Sunday, we shared Hubert Graham's story: one that would tell the historical and present struggles of racism within the church.

It’s a story that forces us to think outside of our own perspective, so see the church through the lens of someone of a different race. It moves us to ask questions about our personal life and the responsibility of the church when it comes to race.

It’s stories like Hubert’s that show us how theissue of racism has kept our country and our churches divided for too long.

Here at Renovation Church we will do everything we can to do our part at ending racism and hatred of this kind. If we are really going to say that we are about “

Reaching Every man, woman, and child

” then we have to write a new history for our nation. That starts with the Church living out a new level of life that is truly indivisible—

Loving others 


 as Jesus loved us.

The Gap Between Belief and Disbelief

[blockquote cite="ROMANS 1:20 (NLT)" type="center"]For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.[/blockquote]This past Sunday at Renovation Church was about the great creativity that Jesus used to reach people and convey messages in simple life-changing ways. Jesus used stories. So to tie into this concept we saw an opportunity to craft an experience that might help convey a very real struggle of belief and disbelief. So what did we do? We shot a video that told a story.

Using Romans 1:20 for the backbone, we found a culturally relevant song that the band played with the video which matched the story we were trying to tell. To summarize: the video is about a young man struggling to believe even though the world around him reveals God’s undeniable power and divine nature. Woah… kind of deep right?

[blockquote type="center"]Watch the video here.[/blockquote] Even if this concept wasn’t quite revealed to it’s fullest for you, that’s okay. When it comes to using creative elements our intention isn’t to be heavy handed or to force feed an idea but to invoke wonder to promote discovery of who God is.

[blockquote type="center"]We view creativity as a yet another tool for reaching our community.[/blockquote]

We are loved by the author of all creation, the ultimate creator. So followers of Jesus should be the most creative, innovative and thoughtful people on the planet. We're going to do whatever it takes, discover new methods, and speak in creative, thought-provoking ways to reach every man, woman, and child. Why? Because it's what Jesus has called us to do.

[blockquote type="center"]You shouldn't feel like you have to believe to feel like you belong.[/blockquote] To those of you whom may not yet believe or desperately struggle to believe: Our prayer is that one day you may see God’s plan of restoration. (2 Peter 3:9) His desire is to see every man, woman, and child come to the knowledge of the truth. So press on, keep digging, keep searching - it's worth it.
