B.L.L.E.S.M. – practical discipleship!

The Uniting Church pastor and church planter at Hampton Park (Melbourne), Mat Harry, is experimenting with a simple acronym to cultivate disciples in his churches and groups. Built around the idea of becoming a blessing to their community, it is simple, comprehensive, and biblical, and includes reflection/action learning. Members will explore one aspect of discipleship one week – then following practical application they will return to share their stories the next week. For the first week the theme has been BLESS PEOPLE – and each person (young and old) makes a commitment to bless at least 3 people each week. It is working. Some pretty interesting stories are already coming in. (Mat is not letting his members know the full meaning of the acronym up-front. If you would like it, leave a comment!)
