But yes, I think it would indeed be very cool. Then we could see some trending topics like #addressingpoverty #mentoringkids #feedingthehungry #cleaningupmyneighborhood #lovingpeople #bridgingdivides. Now I have rapidly approached the point of talking too much, so I'll stop - thanks for asking the question.
I think this relates to our weekly gatherings as well, ironically called services, that often become a big vacuum of time and resource. I know the purpose of this blog is to launch a church, I hope your community will have the courage to take some moratoriums from christian activities to expend some effort in communities near and far. And I hope my life and community reflects it too. Not throwing stones here, wish you all the best.
My question is this, couldn't that time be better spent? Talking matters, I believe in the power of ideas to change the world. I think the church has that one down though - we're good at it, no need to keep proving the point. Funnel that time and money into other things for a year - then gather for a conference and talk about what happened, not what might happen.
And did you happen to also notice the hero of all of our adolescent mix tapes - the one and only Gin Blossoms - will be performing.
I think I've made my case.
So, tell that baby to hurry up, pack up the car, bring your t-shirt, and let's stomp some grapes.
I'm not a Lutheran, but with all your denomination has dealt with on this issue recently I would encourage anyone forming an opinion - and more importantly deciding how you're going to live and co-exist and love now that the decision has been made - to read his book.
