It’s Wednesday again, and time for more Words. If you’re posting, be sure to leave your link in Mr. Linky. If you’re just reading, be sure to click on Mr. Linky and see what others are saying this week. And, as always, your comments are invited.
I had an interesting exchange this week with a pastor in California. He has a blog called “Leave the Building” which is just what their church did. They sold their building, and are now operating as “a community of house churches.”
Regular readers will know that I think this is a great idea – much better than my idea of blowing up all the church buildings – so I’ve been sporadically following the posts on this blog.
In his most recent post, he was taking Max Lucado to task over his new book titled Fearless. I objected to this line in his post:
Because when the Body of Christ has your back, what is there to fear?
My response was this:
I think you more appropriately should have said “If God is for us, who is against us?” (Rom 8:31)
We eventually came to a sort of agreement, but I’m asking all of you what you think. You can read the whole thread here and even join in if you want. But I’d be very interested in your comments on this.
And while you’re reading, you can listen to this classic hymn, one of my favorites.
