I’m going to cheat a little today.   Rather than writing the post that I was going to – the one about church and feeling comfortable, I’m going to cheat and urge you to go to my friend Sarah Zuidema’s blog at http://sahzu.wordpress.com/2014/10/08/dependent/ and read what she wrote about there.

What does it have to do with church?   It has everything to do with church.   She issues a very clear wake up call that we, as a nation, we as Christians and we as a church  do a lousy job of listening to the needs of others and do something about them.

The key sentence in the whole thing is the last one:

“If we are as dependent on God as a rich American is dependent on his friend giving him a ride to work, then I don’t think God is very impressed.“

Do you think God is impressed with His church?

Uh huh, I thought so……..
