And why does your hair hang over your face? For him who meets me to take me by the
forelock.

And why, in Heaven's name, is the back of your head bald? Because none whom I have
once raced by on my winged feet will now, though he wishes it sore, take hold of
me from behind.

Why did the artist fashion you? For your sake, stranger, and he set me up in the porch as
a lesson."


In the time of Augustus, a leading Roman lyric poet by the name of Horace, coined a

phrase oft repeated in our times by all generations. “Carpe Diem”. In Horace, the phrase is part
of the longer Carpe diem quam minimecredulapostero – "Seize the day, trusting as little as
possible in the future". The ode says that the future is unknowable, and that instead one should
scale back one's hopes to a brief future. That is certainly not so for the church of Jesus Christ.
While Horace meant to suggest that we should enjoy today because of an uncertain future, the
popular and more inspiring translation of the phrase has been “seize the day”. We say to our
young people, Carpe Diem, Seize the Day -- Take advantage of the opportunities that are yours
today. Make the most of your future by availing yourself of the many options before you now.


Conclusion
These are without doubt challenging times, and God has once again proven Himself

faithful. These are also times of incredible opportunity for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Shall we
seize the day, as we see God moving at what He has determined to be the right moment, in His
Kairos time?


What’s with this 10 -10-10?:

Now, unless you are a child or teen today, then most likely, over the remaining course of
your lifetime and mine, there will be only three days, when this kind of sequence of identical
numbers will be possible on the calendar: October 10, 2010; November 11, 2011 and December
12, 2012. After that, should the Lord tarry, the next opportunity for such a sequence will be
January 1, 2101. Of the three remaining such dates for us in this century, only one falls on a
Sunday. October 10, 2010 (10-10-10).

I want to challenge our pastors and congregations to give special emphasis on that day
10-10-10 to call your church to be especially sensitive to the Kairos of God and to “Seize the Day”
by re-articulating and renewing the missional commitment of your local church, and by sharing
specific plans you have to fulfill the Great Commission in your Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and
the ends of the earth.

Pastors – Take that day to focus on the Missional Vision and Commitment of your local
church. Talk to your people about how your church is fulfilling its God-given mission in the
contexts of Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth. Remind your church of the
core values of the Church: Christian, Holiness, Missional. Remind your church that we are a
Connectional Church.
I would challenge you to three 10s:

¥ Give Ten Percent for Global Missions
¥ Have Every Member of your Church Praying for Ten People who Need Jesus.
¥ Strive for an Increase of at least Ten in Sunday School Attendance over the next ten

months.

At the District Level I’d like to see us take in new members on that day, and surpass
10,000 in membership for the first time in our history.

On that date, 10-10-10, I want to make a commitment at the district level, specifically with
reference to the mission field which is the City of Chicago. Today, in the presence of our general
superintendent, I want to make a public commitment. On 10-10-10 you will find this servant of the
church, in the city of Chicago, and the district will be launching a new work (preferable in

partnership with a local church), in the neighborhood to which God chooses to lead us, with the
church planters God provides, and with the resources He makes available to us. I anticipate that
new work to be one of many the Lord will help us begin in Chicago in the coming decade. And as
long as God gives us health and life and a specific call to the city, I commit to leading the Chicago
Central Nazarenes in claiming the city of Chicago for Christ. While there may be other Christian
churches in Chicago, Chicago needs the message of holiness that is our watchword and song,
clearly re-articulated, expressed, and lived out incarnationally, in a way that makes holiness
relevant and a force for transformation in the context of this city.


So, Mr. DS, this is your night to share your vision. What is it, then, that you see?

I see a mission field that extends from Danville to Zion, Illinois, and along the way
includes the 3 million people living in the city of Chicago. I see a district with solid fiscal,
organizational, and missional foundations in place to be useful to God in His way, and in His time.
I see a God who has been faithful in helping us meet and overcome the challenges of our times in
an awesome and amazing way. I see a people fully committed to being Christian, Holiness and
Missional, who expectantly look for a movement of God.

I see us being about the Missio Dei, the mission of God, in times of challenge and
opportunity, ready for the Kairos of God, ready for the opportunities God brings us in “the fullness
of His time”. I see us stripped of the liabilities and limitations that tend to hold us back. I see us
having our lamps lit and trimmed, ready should He choose to come even at night. I see us living
in holy expectation of the breaking in of God’s Spirit in our midst.

These things do not come, except through prayer and fasting, my brothers and sisters.
And… in the fullness of time, in the Kairos of God… He will come. Perhaps it will be on 10-10-10.
Perhaps it will be before then. Perhaps it will be at another time. Whenever He determines to be
the fullness of time, let us seize the day!


Respectfully submitted,



Brian E. Wilson
