What’s In A Name?

Name

Thanks for visiting our weblog. You may be wondering where we got the title. If you haven’t already put the pieces together, “Abundantly Moore” comes from two sources. 1) It’s obviously a play on our last name (or “surname” as they say in Zim). But 2) (and more importantly) the wordplay comes from a portion of Ephesians 3:20-21 which says, “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

This verse perfectly summarizes how we feel about the mission that lay before us. As we think about moving our small army to southern Africa to engage in the much needed task of leadership training/theological education, we fully understand that if we attempt this venture in the power of our own flesh, we are doomed to fast failure. The only glimmer of hope we have for success is by leaning into the One who is able to do “abundantly more” than all we ask or think, according to HIS power at work within us! This blog title is more than a blog title, it is a prayer that God would bring about His glory through us in the churches of Zimbabwe.

(As a side note, the word “abundant” also happens to describe our family photo fairly well 🙂

Thanks for following!
