Building a space for God

This morning I read the book of Haggai in THE MESSAGE. The introduction spoke to me:

God doesn ´t live in buildings („The God who made the heavens dosn´t live in custum-mades shrines.“)….

We are not angels. We inhabit space. Material – bricks and mortar, boards and nails – keeps us grounded and connected with the ordinary world in which we necessary live out our extraordinary beliefs.

The book of Haggai then describes how the people were building a place for meeting up with God. And how God told them „I am with you“ and „I own all the silver and the gold.

It encouraged me for my boat project. God does not need a space. Yet – we need spaces that help us meet up with him. That is my dream for this boat that it would become a space where people

– could meet God – the God who is with you

– could find healing

– could find new hope

– could find friends.

How you can help?

– Come over and help practically: We can use a lot of strong guys and girls who will help scratch of rust, lay floors, scrubb floors etc. in the next months. You can stay on board while renovating.

– Pray: Stuff works better when God blesses. I appreciate prayer that things will go smoothly,for provison, enough help – simply for a lot of blessing on the project.

– Send some silver or gold: To pay the professionals who work on the boat every work-day costs about 80 Euro. If you would like to sponsor the project you can sponsor one (half) hour, one day or one week of work….(0r two, or three).

If – like me – you're strapped for cash – you might consider selling something at ebay, amazon or etsy and donating the gains for the project.

Portal for Christians

Met with a bunch of people to start a portal for Christians in Berlin. Pretty good. Won´t be involved in the process myself for a long time, but definetely wanted to be part of starting it…love starting new stuff! It´s pretty good! Will see what happens in the next months as the portal emerges…[will let you know!]

Michael Jackson in Berlin

Michael Jackson was in town – welcomed by dozens of Teenagers screaming under his Hotel Window. Marching with protest signs: „Peace to Michael“ and „Leave his nose alone!“….drew some attention – even ours as I was sitting in a Starbucks opposite of his hotel with some people who wanted to understand what Berlin is like and what God is doing in the city. As I was trying to explain some of the historic roots of the city we had this interessting background event…weird….pretty weird. Like absurd theater.

A tragic situation

The Lutheran church in Berlin and the surrounding area Brandenburg has more full time staff (pastors, administrators, counselling people etc.) than people who attend their Sunday services. They of course have a n

umber of passive members who always pay, but never come. But nevertheless this is a tragic situation. Guess Berlin needs a lot of new, vibrant places of worship, but also a renewal and revive of the existing ones.

Night of worship

Germany used to have a national day for repentance and prayer. Now this has been abolished. However Christians still spend this day in prayer as

much as they can. In Berlin the young people will meet at Babelsberger Str. 37 for a night of worship and seeking Gods face starting at 6.30 p.m.

Berlin prayer letter

Berlin is on the move. We decided to start to work on a Berlin prayer letter which will be edited monthly. Four people, two men and two women will start working on this project, soon. And other things are in the tube, too. Watch this space. Much more will happen.

Important negotiations

This city has problems. 45 Billion Euro debt. That is twice the amount of money that will be needed to restore the areas affected by the floods this summer. 7.3 Billion of Berlins annual income of 8 Billion is spent on salaries. Right now negotiations are underway between the Berlin government and trade unions to find a solution for this problem…well or

at least some kind of survival mode.
Negotiations of quite an other kind are underway south of Berlin. A number of pastors and their wives have withdrawn for 5 days to meet with one another and with God….and are searching for Gods answers for the spiritual and practical challenges of Berlin.
May all those negotiating for the future of Berlin be blessed.

Together for Berlin

The network together for Berlin yesterday officially blessed Axel Nehlsen for his new job as the „administrative leader“ (Geschaeftsfuehrer). It was a wonderful service, celebrating what God

was and is doing in the city …and will be doing as the body moves closer together. I am excited. And Axel and the other men in the leadership of Together for Berlin are great people. I love them. Glad to be in a city like this.
