“Tipping Points: Rethinking Conversion”
A Pecan Street Mission
“So when were you saved?” or “When was the moment you accepted Jesus into your life?”
Have you ever been asked a question like this? Some people have a clear moment when God’s love broke into their lives for the first time. For others, it’s hard to name an exact moment because God’s love has been more like a steady trickle than an overwhelming flood. Often, when we talk about “conversion” we think about dramatic Pentecost-like moments of God’s love breaking into a person’s life. But “conversion” is also the slow drip of God’s love that eventually overflows the waters of our baptism.
This February join us in exploring how the love of God manifested itself in the lives of the first Christians. In Acts, the story of the early church, God moves in both ordinary and extraordinary ways – God’s love pouring out as a rushing stream and as the slow drip of a leaky faucet. From these stories of the first Christians, we’ll think about how God’s love has been at work in our own lives and in the life of Pecan Street Mission.
Hope you’ll dive into the conversation!
