a picture is worth a thousand words.

so rather than write a bunch, i’d like to paint a picture, loaning words that are not mine, but certainly could be ::

I’m deep into this thing we call Christianity. I also hope in the process that I’ve grown deeper into the simple way of Jesus, knowing that the two (Christianity and the way of Jesus) may or may not go together.

Meanwhile I have realized my deepest passion isn’t for church people :: it has always been for those outside the church. I want to welcome them in, to help them become part of our life and mission. But often I have felt like an ambulance driver bringing injured people to a hospital where there’s an epidemic spreading among the patients and doctors and nurses.

You know the feeling?

What do you do? You try to help the hospital get the epidemic under control again, so they can get back to helping people heal.

i think that’s worth 1,000 words.

what do you think? agree or disagree? can you relate with this word picture?
