I met this week with a group of leaders from across the UK. It’s one of a number of similar forums that I am involved with. Across the denominations and streams there is a growing desire for unity and a whole host of gatherings to enable leaders to build friendship and learn from each other. I am encouraged.
In Ezekiel chapter 1 we read about the living creatures and the ‘wheels’. The wheels intersect with each other and move when the creatures move who move when the Spirit moves. I see these various forums and gatherings a bit like the wheels. There is a lot of overlap and intersection. People from one group also belong to another. I see God’s hand in this. Connecting the Body. No single main wheel or person. And as the Spirit moves we all move. It may well begin with one ‘wheel’ but because of the connection and overlap, as that ‘wheel’ moves we all move. This is heaven’s strategy. Exciting days.
