“For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”” (Matthew 17:20)

I’ve created this blog to share some thoughts and provoke some discussion on the future of my church, the Community of Christ.

The underpinning idea is that the key to growth in the church is for attention to turn from the World Church, it’s leaders, and church staff, to the power to transform the world that is inherent in each person when they go into their communities with Christ. If each of us had faith the size of a mustard seed, imagine what we could achieve!

“Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father.””(John 14:12)

I certainly do not expect everyone to agree with me, nor should they. I do encourage you to join in the discussion and share your views. It is together that we will change the world!

About me:

My name is Rick Collins. I’ve grown up attending the Community of Christ and have served in various volunteer and paid positions in the church. At present I am reflecting on the role of the institutional church and the power of members acting on their own initiative to transform the world.
