Sunday Recap for April 7, 2019:
What's Mine?

Mission Highlight: Thank you Kevin and Sharon for sharing the Mission Highlight on San Francisco's District 3. They shared about District 3 with the understanding that followers of Jesus are sent out to love and serve the city and share the good news of Jesus Christ. And in order to love the city and neighborhoods that we live in, we must know the city. Here are some facts:
  • San Francisco’s District 3 encompasses the north east corner of the city and includes the neighborhoods of Telegraph Hill, North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Embarcadero, Nob Hill, Financial District, and Union Square.
  • In terms of ethnicity, 46% are White, 44% are Asian, 8% are Latino, and 3% are African American.
  • 43% are foreign born and 50% of residents speak languages other than English.
  • In terms of education, 19% have a high school degree or less, 33% have a college degree, and 18% have graduate and professional degrees.
Kevin shared about how they moved to Telegraph Hill two years ago, and some of the most prominent features of their neighborhood include how polarizing it can feel. On a single walk around North Beach, they interact with folks across all socio-economic backgrounds--young millennials, reminding them of the city's transience, Chinese immigrants, whose primary language is not English, and their neighbor across the street who owns a Porsche and two Ferraris. However, there is still a strong sense of community in places like local cafes of people playing the same crossword puzzle, community centers where kids play together, and on the streets where families run into each other and catch up in the streets. 

They also see hope and God moving. They met a local community group whose mission was to intentionally and tangibly love their next-door neighbors as Jesus adamantly commands, and see churches being planted in the community, with at least two being planted since we’ve moved into the neighborhood – The Porch and Liberty Church SF. 

Then Sharon led us in prayer for this District. Let's continue to pray for our city and neighborhoods, and seek to love and serve our neighbors the way Christ taught us.
This Week's Sermon: “What's Mine?” (James 5:1-6)
 
“Most of the time, we are simply serving ourselves – pouring our energy and hope for happiness into the nurture of our own desires. But at each moment, we are serving either the desires of our flesh, or the desires of God … ‘Each of our lives is shaped by the war between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of self.’ The conflict is that we don’t want to be subservient to anyone else’s wants and needs. Not even God’s.” - Nate Palmer, Servanthood as Worship
 
Main Idea: Everything we have is God’s to assign for His kingdom
