For the Love: A blog by the tribe at YWAM Sydney Newtown
For the Love is a blog by the tribe at YWAM Sydney Newtown. Although we are unapologetic about being a missions community, we understand that the word “missions” sometimes brings with it unwanted negative connotations. We hope to help change that as we dive into a wide range of topics about life, Jesus, and putting our faith into action.

A Blessing for Social Justice Advocates

Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called children of God.   May God bless you with the courage to speak truth in love, to pray for the provoker of injustice and to walk with wisdom and grace as you advocate for the oppressed.   May you not be tempted to take vengeance upon yourself but trust the one who said never avenge yourselves but leave it to Him.   May the word of God wash over your heart and mind and guide your peace as you encounter the news...

Was I kissing my career goodbye? Am I too old? How am I going to make friends?   Yes, those questions are incredibly real and so valid.   Initially when researching if doing a DTS with YWAM would be right for me one major thing that struck me was the array of young faces that flashed...

A Blessing for Worship Leaders

May you be filled afresh with the wonder of the one we sing about.   May you find the courage to take those you lead to new depths, every single time we gather to praise and adore Jesus.   May you resist the urge to cut corners or go through the motions.   May you discover fresh creativity in each season that God entrusts you to take on this mantle of leadership.   May you see this vocation as a real spiritual act of leadership, and never just a slot to be filled.   May...

A Blessing for Teachers

Cultivators of hearts and minds, may you be strengthened in your sacred and needed work.   May you know that each moment you spend pouring into another is full of meaning whether you are teaching ABC’s, algebra or baking bread.   May the teachers who have journeyed many years find their bodies strengthened and their hearts encouraged.   May the teachers who are just beginning find their nerves calmed and their path well guided.   May the teachers who are in the thick of it find one more light of inspiration again and...
