Description

Mosaic Lincoln is a community following Jesus in practicing rhythms of grace to bring renewal to a weary and burdened world. Our desire is to come together as a people unencumbered by the cultural and religious expectations of our time. Instead, we will focus on receiving and extending the grace of God. Our hope is to work together to cultivate safe spaces within our church family, our neighborhoods and our shared networks where people can lean into each other’s stories and experience the restoration of Jesus together.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon youand learn from me, for I am gentle and humblein heart, and you will find rest for your souls.""The kingdom of heaven is like treasure in a field.When a man found it, he hid it again, and thenin his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field."

I was suddenly overwhelmed with the realization that I loved all these people.That they were mine and I theirs.That we could not be alien to one another even though we were total strangers.It was like waking from a dream of separateness of spurious self-isolation in a special world.This sense of liberation from an illusory difference was such a relief and such a joy to me that I almost laughed out loud.
The same Lord is Lord of all and is generousto all who call on him.For, "Everyone who calls on the nameof the Lord shall be saved."~Romans 10:12-13

Then I said to myself, "Oh, he even sees me in the dark!At night I'm immersed in the light!"It's a fact: darkness isn't dark to you;night and day, darkness and light, they're all the same to you."Psalm 139:11-12
Let us then pursue what makes for peaceand for mutual upbuilding.Romans 14:19

The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting,"Hosanna to the Son of David!Blessed is the one who comesin the name of the Lord!"Matthew 21:9________And the light is wilder hereOut on the edge of reasonAnd Love burns bright and clearOut where I cannot seize Him~Audrey Assad, Irrational Season
We are in the unknown of the wilderness—        Discerning and working, seeking and dreaming.We are in the unknown of the wilderness—       Grieving and wondering, praying and hoping.We are in the unknown of the wilderness—       Longing and walking, creating and waiting.We are in the unknown of the wilderness, but we have not been alone; for God walks with us, every step of the way. So we will worship our God who walks with us in our darkest nights and our brightest days.---------May God’s love sustain you,And may you love those who surround you.May God’s Spirit empower you,And may you empower all those you meet.May God’s joy fill your hearts,And may this joy overflowTo the ends of the earth to bring God’s restoration to all things,Now and forever, Amen.
Mosaic Gathering Prayer, March 8, 2020:You are welcome here— The young and old, those who have visions and those who dream dreams. You are welcome here— The sinner and saint, those who seek forgiveness and those who long for peace. You are welcome here— The hurt and the doubting, those who know the wilderness and those who feel lost. You are welcome here; for you are loved by God.For our world bombarded by illness and disease.Lord, have mercy. Bring healing and protection.For our neighbors on this planet suffering under the weight of chaotic weather systems.Lord, have mercy. Bring healing community and restoration.God, we give you our tears.We give you our hearts.They are brimming with doubt and are saturated with fear,but we give them to you anyway, for you promise to love us as we are.You promise to walk with us to the ends of the earth, so in this moment,we promise to tell the truth. God, you ask us to be brave and bold,but we cower in fear.You ask us to love our neighbors as ourselves,but we hold tight to privilege and the status quo.And you ask us to risk it all to follow you,but we are content with the injustices at hand. Forgive us for our sin and lift our eyes to you.In our valley, lead us to your green pasture.Restore our lives beside the still waters.Gratefully we pray, Amen.
