Now is the Church’s Mordecai Moment! The Church can bring relief in deliverance to those suffering due to the pandemic, or diminish and die.
We read that Mordecai challenged Esther, saying “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 14:4). I believe God is saying to the Church today that it was created ‘for such a time as this’. We must not remain silent because we can bring relief and deliverance during this crisis. But if we do not grasp this opportunity, the Church’s relevance will diminish and die.

“Did you know that in the UK, 80% of businesses fail within their first year of operating? And according to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics, only 42.4 per cent of businesses started in 2013 were still trading five years later.
Running a business is not easy and often business owners can feel sick of feeling sick and tired of not moving fast enough or moving in the right direction. If you could visualise where you would like to take your business, the next conundrum is what are the steps to get to there.”
From coaching many start ups and small businesses and also running her own businesses from ground zero to six figures, in this article Lisa Chee MBE shares some reflections that could help change the statistic of business failure to a more positive one.
