Do you feel it? A certain restlessness?
A stirring within your soul wondering,
"Is this it? Is this all there is to being the church?".
Do you ever wonder if Jesus really meant those things He said in the Bible?
Have you taken the time to contemplate how in the world do Christ's commands line up with our current operating procedures in the church?
Not every church falls into the main stream, but sadly too many do. Just like our planet goes through climate change cycles, so too does the Christian Church as a whole.
My sincere hope is to start positive conversations that lead us to begin seeking answers instead of ignoring the problems at large or merely pointing the fingers in blame. (Our true battle is not against each other, denominations, or our differing political allegiances. Ephesians 6:12)
Frankly, since we are all human we will invariably mess this church thing up in different ways.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord,one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
Will you join me?
