All around us we are seeing division and it has found its way into our church walls. As a body of believers, we have to stop and meditate on Jesus' prayer in the gospel of John. That they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.. John 17:21-23 ESV. Jesus prayed for unity over his disciples, that they would be able to experience the powerful unity that is shared amongst the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
So what does all of this have to do with a hoodie? First, we wanted to launch a new apparel item. Second, as a creative team, we wanted to create something that represented where we are as a church. We present this garment to you, as a church that is facing disunity but is in a position and posture to fight against it.
The Cottage Grove logo: this is why we're here; for the church, to see her proclaim and display the reconciling work of Jesus Christ.
"unity": what we as a leadership team are desiring to fight for and obtain; as Jesus so beautifully prayed for, that we would would be one as He and the Father are one.
"now more than ever": because it's true. It's no secret that we are in a fragile state and now more than ever we need to be laboring over prayer for unity.
Our hope is that this hoodie would simply be a declaration and commitment to each other to continue to fight for unity,
now more than ever.
