One of the tendencies of blogs is to point out the negative. It is easy to critique things and to criticize. It is easy to armchair quarterback and complain about what could be better. We don’t always have good avenues to express our concerns and our pet peaves and so we come and vent. That is just human nature. How about some posts by all of you about what you love and appreciate about the church? Wouldn’t it be great to be filled up with stories of victory and stories of things gone right?
I love the church and I am so glad to be a part of it. I love coming to a place where there are people I have more in common with than golf or cars. I love being with people who know that they are a work in progress and who are patient with me in all of my own weaknesses. I love talking about Jesus with people who also love him. I love seeing the lost come and find Jesus and a new lease on life. I love seeing those new Christians reach out to their lost friends and watch the cycle repeat itself. The church may not be perfect but that just reminds us how much we need Christ and his grace and that reminds us to be gracious toward each other. No matter how many things we can bicker and argue about over how things should or shouldn’t be, I still love the church.
What do you love about the church?
