City Life Church, Cambridge started 24 years ago with a vision, passion and boldness to do something risky. It's been a blast, and like everything worthwhile, it's been difficult as well as joyous. Still, we see God has brought our time to an end. As of June 10th CLC Cambridge will disperse, sending our final number out to change the world--the mission God gave us right from the very start. Thank you to everyone who's joined the amazing adventure! There is so much to be grateful for. We still identify as family and we remain friends as we enjoy finding out what God has for us all next. --Kevin, Tom, Lyn & Tim
Tidying as we Go
We’ve found a new phrase for a value that we want to pursue as CLC. We were on Crow Hill and while tidying up our own rubbish we decided to collect some other rubbish, thus leaving the area cleaner than when we first arrived.
God cares so much for His dearly beloved creation–people and world too. Making our patch better for the next person who comes along symbolizes how we all share the hills, the parks, our world. Cleaning someone else’s litter reminds us that we give freely and God commissioned us to be a blessing and not being distracted by things like who made the mess in the first place. We love, like He loves us, generously and with no strings attached!
This is a good value to cultivate. There are many ways we can do this in our lives. Not just litter. We can even contribute some encouraging words to a conversation, give someone a smile who comes to us frowning.
We are copying our loving Papa God when we bring His redemption into our wold. Who knows the big impact we are having.
This is why, on Sunday at our BBQ on Jesus Green, we brought some litter pickers and all ages enjoyed leaving the area cleaner than it was when we first arrived!
