The Church

I read a post recently from a friend and a guy who’s opinion and theological perspective I hold in high regard.  If you didn’t read it before continuing on the post is about what your dream of the church is.  Here are some of the things that David wrote about the church:

I dream of a church being...

A place where you can be yourself because you are surrounded by people who honestly care about you…

A place that keeps your secrets, but doesn’t allow your secrets to control your life…

A place that cares more about you being healthy than being happy…

A place that truly listens when you talk, encourages you when you are tired, and genuinely celebrates your success…

A place that won’t allow you to be fake because they believe there is great beauty in who you really are…

A place that shares your dreams instead of asking questions like, is that practical?

A place where your deep hurts can be shared and healing can be experienced…

A place where you can be you…

A place where your mistakes are forgiven and your faults don’t disqualify you from being a part of something extraordinary…

I’m curious, what are your dreams of the church?
