I have a new mantra… a new little daydream…lately…

When I get frustrated with American Christian culture, church drama, or something along those lines, I pose this question:

Can’t we just be brothers and sisters eating donuts at the feet of Jesus?

The first time I asked my friend De this, she told me “Um, no.”  Yep… rain all over my parade, but I knew she was right. We make Jesus and faith and grace and love way too complicated, and yet…

this morning, at church

– both services, all of it together –

well, it’s the closest I’ve experienced to that yet.

Pray in agreement with God.
Trust His Spirit to lead you.
Put aside your own agenda.
Pass the donuts.
