A Calendar of Purpose

We just finished a time of looking at the calendar of events for 2007. I am amazed at the level of future planning. I have never been in a setting where the entire year is pretty well planned by the previous November. I found myself even thinking - it would be worthwhile to begin looking at events two or three years out.

The next level of discourse was centered around this question is how do each of these activities / events line up with the purpose of the Church of the Resurrection:

To build a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.
The idea of this analysis or question is as one of the discipleship staff said - "We are not trying to call people into activity, but leading people into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ." Now is a time of solitude and reflection...
