This week we have been working on developing our site at www.skybridgecommunity.net. There is a really cool article on the front page about a person's journey in finding work in Europe. I think you will like it.
I really like what Todd Littleton pastor of Snowhill Church near Oklahoma City said about the idea of the Skybridge Community. I think it is a great summation of what we are wanting to see happen.
"..we are discovering a new “breed” of missional missionaires. Those who understand following Jesus is not a profession. Rather than feel led to a place, figuring out what to do, get trained and then go, these young people believe God wants them to live elsewhere. Not just live, but settle and live out their lives among people who need to be connected with God. Rather than as professional missionaries, they are professionals who get what missional living is all about. They take up resident in another place. Live out their lives. Share hospitality in the name of Jesus and demonstrate what Andrew Jones refers to as Jesus’ model of “throwing parties and telling stories.”
