October 19: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


When people can’t grasp you or what you’re all about, they automatically take offense against you. That’s on them, not you. Mark 6:2-3

Grassroots ‘Movements of the Way’ will get recognized no matter the lack of structured publicity. It’s up to others to believe or deny the rumors that come with it. Mark 6:14-16

There are two types of haters: Ones that loathe you no matter what, and ones that fear you will steal their influence. Mark 6:17-20

Much love.

    Hey Andrew,

    I just wanted to share with you what happened to me today. I was wearing my I’m sorry shirt in a furniture store. The older guy who worked there asked me what I was sorry for. I said the I’m sorry is the church apologizing to the gay community.. I couldn’t even get it out before he turned around and refused to listen or even acknowledge me. I have never experienced anything like that. I decided to just tell his back about building bridges between the church and the gay community. So crazy.

    I lived Mark 6:2-3 today. I have to admit it hurt. It made me think about Jesus and what He went through for us. What I went through was nothing but yet it still made me have a better understanding for people who are discriminated against everyday.

    Bless you and what you do,
    one love,
