It was twenty years ago today. . .

June 11, 2014


It was twenty years ago today. . ., and you might be thinking. . . that ” Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play….. but that’s just showing your age.  It was twenty years ago today that the Guptills arrived back in Canada with the dream of a new church that would impact a community and make a Kingdom difference.  A church that would reach the pre-churched, the de-churched and the un-churched.   And a lot has happened since then, much of it unplanned and so here we are.
Cornerstone has seen a lot of changes since the day that it existed only in my dreams.  We worshipped in movie theatres, schools, retirement homes, conference rooms and parks before we finally settled into our own building.   The music has changed, the overhead projector made room for PowerPoint and suits gave way to jeans but the dream isn’t over. 

My friend and mentor Laurel Buckingham used to cast a vision for the day when the most disinterested person in Moncton wouldn’t be able to ignore the presence of Moncton Wesleyan Church.  
And I continue to dream of how Cornerstone can continue to impact the community, make a Kingdom difference and reach the pre-churched, the de-churched and the un-churched.  And we won’t be ignored.  Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
