Forum of Ideas – how does it work?
The Forum operates mainly in smaller circles, in our center and in many different places. Prepare for a very informal atmosphere.
Everyone presents their vision of making the world a better place or their problems and dilemmas.
We discover what will be said by someone, Who made the greatest impact on the world (Jesus Christ) and we think how it connects to what we want to do to change it.
Forum: Discussion – the ranking of values
(1) Selflessness? Your vision and problems are more important for me than mine!
(2) Eternity? Spreading the message about of reconciliation of man with God through faith in Christ (the gospel) as the biggest chance for the world.
(3) Faith? That means trusting Christ. If I trust Someone, I surrender Him myself, so He can do with me whatever He can, including saving. 100% of trust!
(4) Commitment? If I trust Someone, I will do everything He says is worth doing, I will be His disciple and a follower. 100% of commitment.
(5) Correction? Social justice and cultural renewal, as a consequence of the above, here and now! Simply better city and the world.
(6) Well-being? I am as rich, as well I manage with what I have.
How about you? What do you think about it?
Forum: a CaseStudy
Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He wanted to see who Jesus … Jesus … said to him, “Zacchaeus … I must stay at your house today.” So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.” But Zacchaeus … said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house … For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” (Luke 19)
