It's been a while I know...
Life has been full of hard transitions and blessed ones as well. Even though I have not been writing here in this space I have indeed been writing. I am working on a project I have put off for too long now.
My eyes are doing very well now. (Actually better than I even expected! Thank you Lord!)
I wrote this piece months ago, but figured I should finally post it. It follows along with the theme, "Lets Talk Church," which I started in hopes of furthering discussion within the Christian church about the church. Without further ado here it is.
This week I read a poignant piece posted by Thom Rainer. It is formulated by comments made over time from one of his readers. She cuts right to the core of some of the issues plaguing Christians today. Please take a few moments and read,
Jesus tactics though were so much simpler. His call for us was as well.
"You're not a Christian so you are going straight to Hell!"
And they seemed so very approachable and full of love as they said it and all... (Sarcasm anyone?)
I thank God that I also met some wonderful people who simply loved me where I was at despite my impending doom in Hell. They listened as much or more than they spoke and let me have the space to figure things out without fear inducing pressure tactics.
Since you already know what I eventually chose to do I will finish with a few questions. Please won't you join the discussion?
What is your experience?
What do you think about Thom Rainer's post?
