What’s The Deal With The Church?

It’s ironic that the organization that represents the man who said “neither do I condemn you” while standing up for a woman’s rights is perceived as so judgmental today.

You must be dressed a certain way to not be looked at funny in some churches.  There are churches who are against abortion, churches against homosexuals, churches against drums, churches against women wearing pants, churches against sour skittles, anything you can think of there is a church against it. Does this represent God?

There is a large and growing group of people who do not connect with church.  If you don’t go to church, but love God, let’s talk about why.  My intent is not to convince anyone to go to a church.  I promise I will not send the offering basket to your house.  I do not believe that church attendance is the only way to connect with God, or to find a community of faith.  I want to hear your opinion.  I promise I’m not going to try and bring you to visitor’s day at my church.

There is also a large and growing group of people who are disgruntled with church.  Often these people have grown up in church, but do not connect with church anymore.  Many may continue to attend because it’s what they’re used to, it’s the custom. They can see through the facades and rituals and can see that church often lacks that genuine connection with the community.  If you are disgruntled, or can see ways that your church could do better I’d like to hear from you.  Please share your perception, insights and ideas with me.

What if we could create a community that supports each other, encourages each other, and empowers each other as we converted our passion into praise?

What if we could worship God every day by doing the things we are passionate about.  Worship should be practical, and something that we do constantly, instead of a weekly ritual.  How can we incorporate worship into our daily activity?

What if we could take God beyond the four walls of the church and be Christians for seven days instead of just one. We can! Let’s take God home, to work, to school, and to Auntie's house.  Everyday in our actions and words let’s demonstrate God and create a community that supports us as we worship. Let’s be a community that turns our passion into praise.

I would like to invite you to share your experiences of church. Do you have ideas? Please share them. I invite you to make worship practical. Please feel free to comment or message me via the connect page.  Please follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Looking forward to connecting with you.
