these are the people i want to hang with as a part of the same "church"
these are the people i want to be in community with.
these are the people i want to worship with, sit with, talk with, walk with, etc...
probly way different than most churches, but here they are. these are the people...
"The flunk-outs and drop-outs and burned-outs. The broke and the broken. The drug heads and the divorced. The HIV-positive and the herpes-ridden. The brain-damaged, the incurably ill. The barren and the pregnant too many times or at the wrong time. The over employed, the underemployed, the unemployed. The unemployable. The swindled, the shoved aside, the replaced. The parents with children living on the streets... The lonely, the incompetent, the stupid. The emotionally starved or the emotionally dead."
- Dallas Willard
imagine a church full of these people.
that's the community i want to be a part of. with all these people. being accepted and loved... and in their own time, even changing, healing, etc...
but to have a community... a church full of these people... you really do have to "do church" differently.
would it always be easy?
do i want to be a part of creating a place like this?
