The church, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the church.
– Ephesians 1:22 MSG
Church is a community of people who do life in all the different spheres. When those people are empowered to make a difference in their Sphere, you see the impact in local communities.
This year at Hillsong Conference we combined our thoughts from several Spheres to make a difference to children living with physical disabilities in Gugulethu, South Africa.
Take the leaders of our Media, Business, Arts & Entertainment and Religion Spheres and you end up with a crazy idea to deliver the new Nike Flyease shoes to every child who is disabled in the Tembaletu school in Cape Town, South Africa.
The goal was for enough people to buy and contribute towards a pair of shoes for a child. We needed to fill this wall.
People were so inspired to help other people less fortunate than themselves. Within a few days at Hillsong Conference this wall was filled and every child had been catered for.
Many have been asking if they can contribute online. We are working with our team to see if this is possible and will let you know back here at Spheres.Life with updates.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this session and all those who have helped to fit out these children with brand new Nike Flyease.
