I saw this article on "Flash Mobs." People wanting to be involved in the unexpected:
Last summer in Minneapolis, a mob of about 250 people quietly collected in a hotel lobby and stood shoulder-to-shoulder for 12 minutes. Then they all erupted in applause for 15 seconds and just walked away.
These “flash mobs” are part of a trend that started in New York. Some people call them performance art; others call them an annoyance. People show up in a public place, do whatever action has been pre-arranged, then disperse as if nothing has happened. NYC’s Mob Project organizer says, “People feel like there’s nothing but order everywhere . . . and so they love to be a part of just one thing that nobody was expecting.”
This says something to me about our desire to be part of something unexpected and out of the ordinary. Imagine what it was like to follow Jesus around... talk about unexpected things happening all the time!
I'm just thinking that, perhaps, the Holy Spirit wants to orchestrate a "flash mob" here or there: kingdom people doing the unexpected-- kingdom things. I wonder just how open I am to this? Kind of exciting to think about!
