How is Christianity working out for us?

<p>Modern Christianity in one sentence - all talk, no action.</p>

<div>It is easy for us to create a rating system for sin. It’s unspoken, but it most definitely exists. </div><br><div> </div><br><div>All sin somehow in our minds exists on a goodness or badness scale. We call it a goodness scale when we are talking about ourselves, and a badness scale when talking about “them”</div><br><div> </div><br><div>Our sins can range from small sins, all the way to XL sins.</div>

Dealing with the grinch

<p>“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of every kind...It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.” // David W. Orr</p>

Leaders - What people need most

<div> </div><br><div>The purpose of the Church isn’t to create a holy huddle, but to introduce people to Jesus and help them find their place. We don't try to comfortably hide away from everyone else, but run toward the messy, hurting people far from God – because that’s what He’s done with us </div><br><div> </div><br><div> </div>
