why do we say church is messy when we schedule and plan the heck out of everything? sure, the people are messy, but that could be said of everyone in the world. how is the church different? because the Holy Spirit is our guide? but are we really truly fully surrendered to Him? because sometimes i really wonder.
what controls us--the needs and desires of our members and volunteers? the offense or non-offense of our visitors? the fear of inconveniencing people? of inconveniencing ourselves?
just some things to ponder.
