Anniversary

According to my parents, on this day in 1984 I ‘asked Jesus into my heart’. That means I have been struggling with the ups and downs, challenges and contradictions of belief, faith and Christianity for 24 years now.

It sure don’t get any easier…

Deconstruction

…believe that God is not confined inside a systematic theology book, that numbers do not equate “success”, and that God is offended by the pursuit of the Great Commission when it violates our call to live out the Great Commandment.

Another great quote, again from the comments on Emerging Grace’s blog, this time by Gary Means. I’m not sure if I could have thought up a better way to summarise my own feelings, had I spent weeks on it. I think I’d add:

…that busyness does not equal holiness, ministry does not equal microphone, and worship is not an ‘I’-centred experience”.

Of course, the problem with deconstruction is that, once you’ve done it, what do you have left?
