Rend Collective: Brothers and sisters, come to the campfire

UCCF's training director Jason Clarke talks about us being marked by centred unity rather than boundaried. Centred on the gospel rather than with a fenced boundary. People sometimes say we gather around the flag of the gospel. Rend Collective who were guests at our national student leaders conference a couple of years ago, and Krish Kandiah's reflections tell this in terms of the image of campfire. It's a much better image.
It's an appealing vision - and often we get it wrong, but Jesus is a fire worth gathering around - especially for the kind of people who get it wrong.

The fire of the gospel, of life in Christ is the greatest place to be, a place to which everyone is invited, everyone is welcome to come, where there is warmth, conversation, somewhere marked by friendship, somewhere attractive, somewhere to share your trials and your joys, and to sing a song in the middle of it all.
