Aslan's on the Move!
In his Children's Books The Narnia Series, C.S. Lewis writes of the great lion Aslan, a Christ figure who is in and around everything. It was often said of him, "Aslan's on the move!" It wasn't hard to see the Lion's greatness it was evident by everything and every person he touched.
I see and feel the same about our little community of Bluffton. From the explosive growth at our campuses, the expansion of Cross Schools, ministries reaching more people than I can count, and just the lives being changed through our church, Aslan is on the move!
One of the best examples is to watch what God has accomplished through God's Goods. Starting with just a vision to help locals in need is now reaching people on the other side of the globe. With over 300 volunteers pouring their lives into this cause, the ministry gave away nearly $1.5 million. A fraction of that was used to build a Church in Kenya...which the members aptly named "The Church of the Cross" in honor of our fellowship. We've purchased bicycles for ministers to ride from town to town bringing God's word to the most forgotten places on the earth. We support missionaries, ministries, orphanages, homeless shelters, people in need, and everything in between. All of this is possible because of a commitment of God's people to make Him famous. As this ministry and countless others grow, we will continue to show all that God has done and how you can help. Because God's Goods is flourishing we always need more volunteers....you can make a difference! Come be a part of something great, the eternal needle is moving and why wouldn't it....Aslan is on the move!
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
They will put their trust in the Lord. Psalm 40:3
