Hello Burn Family,

We've decided to do a last minute commUNITY Christmas party Dec 18th from 6-9pm and would love to have everyone there! See TJ's CAVE facebook event for details!

What a privilege it is to live in a commUNITY where people are willing to lay down their agendas to spend extended amounts of time soaking in His presence. I love these lyrics:
"The more I seek You, the more I find You"
"The more I find You, the more I love You"
"I want to sit at Your feet..."

It's not about religion, it's about relationship!

This is a clip from a message we received from one of our Burn peeps..."You just don't know how much it means to me to have a place to worship my Lord and my God and to be able to interact with other believers. I look forward to the day when this operation goes 24-7."  The testimony that went along with this was quite awesome in itself but then Sara Thorsby replied with this response... "It is so exciting to hear what God is doing in you and through you! We may not have a corporate gathering that meets 24-7, but because of worshipful hearts like yours this operation is already 24-7....YOU are 24-7 as you live a lifestyle of worship, praise and obedience to God. Keep pressing hard after Him...!"

I'm encouraged and challenged to walk out a lifestyle of worship 24-7 and to know others around me are making efforts to do the same. This is just our warm-up for the time when we'll be seated in heavenly places for all of eternity. We continue to pray for heaven and earth to collide so I encourage us all to live a lifestyle that reflects "heavenly places"!

Burn 24-7 Field Training - If you're interested in digging a bit deeper into the DNA of the Burn, there is an 11 month online course designed to help mobilize those who feel called to carry the flame of night and day worship and prayer to their city and to the nations. See www.burn24-7.com for more info. Registration for the next course ends Jan 17th so don't delay if you're interested!!!

Every hour that is covered is one step closer to 24/7.

If you are interested in serving at Burn New Bern as a worship leader, artist, shift leader, sound tech or intercessor, please contact thorsby@theburn247.com to be considered as part of our team. We're now accepting commitments for the next six months.
