Okay I have fallen between the two and enabled comment moderation, so I get to read it before it goes public, that way I can delete before anyone ever sees it and still have room to allow genuine anonymous comments that are helpful.
Had a really nice time last night, apart from a girl puking in the van and missing the bucket.
Sat on a step and chatted with a drug dealer, he was very friendly and interested and didn't try to sell me anything, probably my first real chat with one of these guys.
Reading a book called Organic Church by Neil Cole, he makes a great statement " If you want to win this world to Christ , you are going to have to sit in the smoking section"
I like what that conveys, another author Leonard Sweet says in the foreword "This is a post- Christian culture that doesn't think the church has anything to offer it except when we stop doing church the way we have been doing it...People today aren't coming over to the Christian side of the street. We have to cross over to their side if we are to give a hand"
Cole also says we need to " lower the bar of how church is done and raise the bar of what it means to be a disciple".
I have only just started reading the book, but am enjoying it.
By the way anonymous is from Belfast, thats all my sitemeter tells me, in fact I get my most support from N.Ireland but also some of the snottiest comments!a land of extremes!!!!
