I’m blown away that the people at the Rock show up every day of the week to love, care, and bless the poor. I’m proud to tell this story and to celebrate what is happening here in San Diego. Sure this is a corporate piece but it’s a great message that has unified 12-15k southern californians to engage their neighbors with the love of Jesus Christ. Are there great stories you could share about your community?
The vision to love the world and be a vessel of hope is what attracts me to the Rock Church. No organization is better equipped to care for the ‘broken’ than the local church. We have a body of people that love their neighbors and their city, we have a leader who communicates the gospel well, a staff that loves God and wants to inspire anyone that experiences the Rock, and a vision that unites us all.
Watch this video, share your vision for the future, tell us how are you going to impact the world and create a better future for the broken.
Osama Bin Laden deserved all the justice he got. We do too, and yet Jesus doesn’t sit around cheering for the justice we deserve and our death. If Osama had confessed his sins to Jesus and asked for forgiveness, Jesus would have forgiven him in a heartbeat. That is a love we can’t comprehend.
Apathetic? Indifferent? Need a new perspective?
Miles McPherson is planning a new type of video product where he not only delivers a message of hope and renewal in pretty dark and hurting places but it challenges Christians to have the appropriate perspective. I see homeless people, I drive by strip clubs on the way to the church, and I see sick and poor every day. Have we become so indifferent that we not only have very little physical impact but we don’t even see souls? I want to learn how to see people through the lens of God’s love. After all that is what he challenges us to do with his own example.
This was an old video I did for Cornerstone that I want to build on for the branding of this video series. What are your thoughts?
“You can give without loving but you can’t love without giving.”

I wanted to make a piece that dealt with the character flaws we all have that might prevent us from making an impact on our world. I think the biggest one we Americans have is “Apathy”. We see the problem, but do nothing about it. This is a charge and prayer to break free from that.
