I’ve had quite a bit of time on my hands of late. Good and bad, one of the good things being that I’m catching up on a lot of reading I have been wanting to do.
I just finished reading Dan Kimball’s They Like Jesus But Not the Church this morning, and the thoughts churning in my head have also been making my stomach churn because what I was reading is all true. And I hate that it’s true, but I have close relatives who stay more than arms’ length away from church and “organized religion” because of various bad experiences they have had with the church – not with Jesus mind you, but with people who are supposed to represent Him in this world. How awkward might you suppose this gets for me whose full-time vocation is serving as ministry staff? Ya know, in the church.
So today, with all that’s running around in my head about my calling, my faith, my life situation, my own experiences, I must needs process it all for awhile.
