I was listening to a q and a podcast from a church while driving today. One of the guys said, “church is not coming and sitting at a regional teaching and worship event. It’s the people you are in community with and what you are doing together to effect change in the world.”
Then I went to a meeting of some people who are wanting to bring shalom to Fort Wayne by caring for people, by addressing issues that underlie poverty. And then I talked with a guy who is working with kids whose parents are in prison. And then I ate lunch with a guy who is helping a local congregation understand how to not be a regional teaching and worship event.
And I understand that I am privileged right now to know people who are convinced that following Jesus doesn’t look like a concert or a conference or a convention. It pretty much looks like a conversation or a caress or a confrontation or a consolation. It pretty much looks like people and people.
