Part 1: Airport Signs and Theological Deepness

I was in the airport recently and saw this sign. It felt awfully familiar to many of our bridge building efforts between the church and the gay community, so I expounded a little.

What do you think?

PS – I am preaching both services tomorrow (9 and 11am) at LaSalle St. Church in Chicago. I’ll be talking about pursuing peace with your enemies; basing it off of Prov 16:7 under the backdrop of Jonah 3:1-4:5. If you’re in or around Chicago, feel free to stop on by and say hi. Oh, and I’ll pick back up on the Washington DC adventures on Monday.

Much love.

    Andrew…excellent observation! I love it. Wouldn’t it be great if we all looked at ourselves as people willing to charge through that door and make that alarm go off “loud and proud”?? Thanks for all you do!
