Rebecca Stanley told of her vision for Urban Journey, an MB church plant which began in 2008 in their home before moving to the Dunbar Community Centre and (September 2009) then to the Menno Simons Centre Sunday evenings. They meet at 5:00 for a simple meal which is also open to students, and then for worship at about 6:00. Her husband Andrew has work on the worship team at Richmond Bethel Sunday mornings, and they both work as UBC chaplains under the auspices of the MB BC conference. Urban Journey has a number of goals, such as journeying together (recognizing that everyone is at a different place in their development), treating every-day life as an act of worship, loving neighbours as ourselves (Mark 12:33, one of the morning’s texts), sacrificial living, and celebrating everyone’s unique inner values. She concluded her story by asking how the church can get beyond being satisfied with today’s burnt offerings and focus instead on enacting the values of Micah 6:6-8. [JEK]
