Quote Of The Day

A Sunday Reflection
This post might be narrow blogging to the team Jesus squad. I hope it doesn’t offend anyone. These are some thoughts and I don’t want to start a debate.
Church and Christianity for that matter should be places of comfort for those who have hearts and souls that need mending after being damaged by various things. Dealing with the reality of life and its ugly stuff is hard work and the church should be a place where you can do that. I want less praise and worship and more blues and gangster rap.
Life is hard enough and Christians should be about helping people on the journey. People of faith are human beings. God is god and when that is realized freedom can be found. It is my hope that my church can be a safe haven for imperfect people. I hope this makes sense.

My fellow Gen Xers rewatch The Goonies. It will carry you back to some good times when life was a little simpler and the adventure was awesome. It also has a newly minted Academy Award winner in the cast. While you are at it show your kids.
