A lot of you know (yet some don’t) that I use to work for our church back in St. Louis. There are a lot of funny things you see and experience when you are on staff at a church. The inside jokes abound…so when I saw this post over at Stuff Christians Like…I thought I would burst at the seems with laughter. Jeremy seriously shushed me because we had put Coop to bed and he would obviously hear my extreme laughter…as would the neighbors.
We, of course, had a little fun guessing who these people were at our old church. Which is always great fun. We laughed- a lot. (Let’s not name names kids…though it is tempting…) But on a serious note (you’ll have to read the post I linked to now), I really hope the hint of seriousness in the end is true of the church. The longer I am a Christian, the more grief my heart experiences over the state of God’s church in the United States. If I ever go back to school, I’ll go to a seminary or equivalent and write my thesis on the state of the church in North America. It is a subject that fascinates me and deeply troubles my heart-seriously.
So while we have a little fun laughing (hysterically) at this post and how funny inside church-type stuff is, at the same time I do wonder where the community of God is headed. Underground? Into homes? Time will tell.
