Yah, that's exactly how I felt, 'sometimes you just gotta go to church.'
Nothing would satisfy; food, bike, songs, nothing, thats how i knew..."sometimes you just gotta go to church." 7 words...
I was reflecting on the recent news of abduction and murder. I mentioned our close link in the baptism of Nathan, the funeral of Kathy Likness and Kim's mother Koreen. We are their community.
I reflected that at baptism we say, "baptism isn't a protection from life - it is an invitation to life." I will never look at those words the same way again.
Looking back, if I were to do Sunday differently I would stick with the theme but preach it black preaching style, rhythmic and engaging. I ended up reading it, i was too tender...in hind sight i should have let the spirit lead more.
Sometimes you just gotta go to church...am I right?
