In Part 2 of our five part video series, "Why We Do What We Do" Ryan Hairston and Deb Hirsch share something near the heart of the Forge DNA- All are invited to participate in this Grand MIssion of God. All the way from the expected ones- the established authors, large and small church pastors, itinerant speakers, and church planters, to the often overlooked- mechanics, stay at home parents, IT workers, grandparents, and children.
In this video, Ryan tells us a powerful story of his 5 year old daughter, proclaiming the anthem of the Kingdom, "Daddy, I think we need to love people...and we need to help other people love people too."
Because throughout the Scriptures everyone had access to Jesus- women, lepers, Gentiles, crooks and thieves, prostitutes and soldiers- everyone now has permission to join in the Mission of God.
For you, who has been the most unlikely person to participate in God's mission in your own story or community?
