A Christian’s vocation, that is, as Martin Luther defined it, the Christian Life, is how God deems it appropriate to answer prayer in many cases. Let us labor as pastors and churchmen to show them so.
How Can You Get Involved?
Pray. One must pray for God to do His will, not human will. Our will is tainted by the poison of self-centered human sinfulness. So we must pray for God’s will to be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. This will require us to ask by what means might God use to accomplish this movement? Talk. Pray. Teach and Work. The Pastor, theologian, counselor, layperson and veteran who has this same vision and burden might begin by getting in on the work of it.
Near term, we are seeking other evangelicals to partner with on this mission to spark the fire of this discussion about how churches should be the primary source of counsel for veterans who are struggling with heart issues. The partnership will look different for some and Lord willing, will leverage each person’s calling and gifting.
Avenues of Work
One way is in the formation of a board of like minded brothers in Christ. The hope is to begin discussions together to layout a more clearly defined mission, and target audience all the while catalyzing conversation within our circles of influence.
Secondly, write for us. Do you have the gift of the pen? a panel of contributors with similar convictions and different experiences will greatly benefit the mission of The Center for Holistic Discipleship.
Tell others. It is simple. Just spread the word.
Contact us. we are certainly open to discussion on how we can partner with you as we move forward.
Pray some more. We make it our prayer that The Lord’s Prayer might be answered through our efforts.
Soli Deo Gloria
