The community at Solidarity pursues depth with Jesus by participating in His Kingdom and providing the space to reflect, process, and internalize what God is doing.
At Solidarity everything is designed in a manner where you are able to experience God and then take time to articulate what happened. At Solidarity, we want to have a balance between the experience and the articulation, simply because we believe that living in this balance will change your life.
There is a beautiful moment when you experience how God is moving. People go to war torn countries and work with refugees, or are fighting sex trafficking in India. You have a chance to see God alive and moving through you and others in that moment. You are participating in His Kingdom and really living as the person God always intended you to be… you get to be the Church. Yet, if we were to just experience God and then not allow that moment to work deeply within us and change us into the people God originally created us to be, then we have cheapened the experience. Instead we have turned it into an amusement park ride, where we go and have a great time and have a lot of stories to tell, but it does not have a resounding affect in our “everyday life.” At Solidarity, we believe that this is only half of the equation. We don’t want to just consume or go from event to event or mission trip to mission trip without allowing those moments to completely change us. We desperately crave the other half of the equation.
With every aspect of Solidarity we look to create the space and environment for everyone to reflect, process, and internalize how God is moving. Whether you are tutoring a child in times tables in the After School Program or playing FIFA’09 with the boys in the Teen Center, Solidarity wants to make sure that these moments are times that bring you closer to Jesus, a time that you grow deep in relationship with him. When we take time to think and process how God is moving we can better internalize what happened. This is when we start to change. All of a sudden your outlook on life changes, scriptures come alive, and we begin to become more aware of God’s presence surrounding our lives. Not only does this affect us, but it also brings more glory to God. We become people who are more appreciative, more grateful, and start living life as we were originally created to be.
