I have been looking at a lot more Christian blogs lately. Not sure why. I see friends of mine who have a link to them and then before I know it I’m checking them out.
Know what I find interesting? Most everyone says what they’re DOING in the “About” section. “I’ve been founding missional churches for the last 12 years” or “I’ve written a book, want to buy it?” or “I lead worship”. Some of them are old pros and some of them are newly following Jesus… and I see that seemingly a lot of their identity is in what they do in this whole “new” church.
I find that not just interesting, but kind of sad. They’re probably brilliant people, so this is not meant to be a downer on their character. I’m just sayin’… can’t we get past the presentation of importance when opening ourselves up to the world or one another? Are we breeding a whole new era of people who have to succeed and present something in order to feel important or able to be heard in the “Christian” world?
Dang, I get tired of it. DANG!!!
