Healing and Vision Ministries heeft een hart voor iedereen die God zoekt in Christus en actief bezig is met wat het betekent om in onze tijd en cultuur als volgeling van Jezus te leven. Leven in alle aspecten staat voor ons centraal. We waarderen (ervarings-) kennis, kunst, muziek, natuur, ecologie, relatie, interactie en integriteit. We zien een enorme shift, die de kerk veranderen zal naar een mondige, organische gemeenschap van mensen die werkelijkheid zoeken met een open hart.
Healing and Vision Ministries has a heart for all those who seek God in Christ and who are actively evaluating what living as a follower of Jesus means in this day and age. Life in all its aspects is central to us. We value (experiential) knowledge, art, music, nature, ecology, relationship, interaction and integrity. We see a major shift taking place that will change the church it into a mature, organic community of people seeking reality with open hearts.
Isaiah 61 New International Version (NIV)
1 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,
3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.
5 Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.
6 And you will be called priests of the LORD, you will be named ministers of our God. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.
7 Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.
8 “For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people and make an everlasting covenant with them.
9 Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the LORD has blessed.”
10 I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.
