Gradually, the conversation is beginning to escalate. Yes, there is still some confusion, and apprehension, and of course some excitement. The bottom line is - people are talking. And that’s a good thing.
Last week I received a text from a friend who shared with me a video of a brother in Nigeria. He was teaching about ekklesia. I was deeply moved by what I heard. He covered the subject very well.
The most amazing thing came near the end of his video. He shared that he had come across a website that had encouraged him, as it confirmed much of what he was preparing to teach. That website is the one that this blog is found, The Ekklesia Center.
I can't express how much that blessed me. Since then, I have reached out to this brother, and prayerfully we may be able to connect in person, in the future.
With this being said, I would like to share his video with you – not because he mentioned my website, but because he has something to say on this subject. I pray it will help you to see that people really are talking. I believe this brother, Adeyemo Temidayo will be a significant voice as the Holy Spirit highlights ekklesia in the earth.
Take a few minutes to watch this video, and then gather with other believers to keep the conversation going. Blessings. TLK
