    I like it! I actually thought about getting a copy – this is only maybe the third one I’ve considered buying. (I like most all of them, but I’m not ready to paper my wall just yet, or have to start theological discussions with my two ten year old grandchildren). But you’ve captured my feeling about The Church, in general.

    I’ve cut my tithe back by 10% this year. When I compare my church – any church – to other charities, I find the overhead is a lot higher at church, and my money goes farther through UMCOR and Compassion Intl. But I do get something from my church, and would get more if I would get more imbedded (? sorry, the coffee hasn’t kicked in yet) into the community, so I’m not saying the extra overhead is a waste. I’m just not sure we need a new sanctuary or parking lot. But then, I’m not good at being a Big Picture type.

    Heart-breaking… and so true in my experience…. sigh…..

    A temple made of living stones… always able to rebuild the external ‘stack’ into a new shape in order to maximize an impact within a new environment… with Jesus words and life example always as the core, the concept, and the constraint….

    Instead, we build a wall and use the name ‘jesus’ as rubble to support the cracks that appear… way too true in my experience….

    Good image David. So accurate, it is sad.

    Much love in Christ always and unconditionally; Caryn

    Wow, always wondered what a “chief corner stone” looked like. Somehow I imagined them a little different.

    Meanwhile, the Mark Driscoll fanboys ignore truths like this.
