One Small Step...

I'm still recovering from the weekend. I went on a retreat with a group of people committed to learning more about what it means to follow Jesus. They are serious about their faith, their food, and their fun! We ate way too much, stayed up way too late (at least some of us, well, not me, them!), and had a great time!
Church can never be the same, because we are not the same, and the church is us! We're bursting out beyond the walls, ready to infiltrate our neighbourhoods, our workplaces and our homes with the reality and love of God in Jesus.
It's a scary realization, really. It's very safe and comfortable to stay within the "church circle," associating with our Christians friends, avoiding the challenges of truly living in and serving our community. I'm not sure where this will all lead us, but I am sure that we want to be following Jesus, being led by Him.
Every journey begins with one small step. Are you with me?
