The Real Church

Jesus' Invitation: Come and Follow
Jesus' Closing Mandate: Go

Some 'churches' invitation: Come and Listen
Some 'churches' closing mandate: No

It seems we build churches that become nothing more than hiding places for the faithful while pretending that our actions are for the good of the world.

I'm glad I have no 'church' to hide in right now.

*These thoughts come from a book I just finished reading*

Wow, I like that, in a weird way. I think you're right. What book was it?

Joshua, what's the book? Sounds like some stuff that is in my heart right now too. Keep on being stretched, my son.
