What Are You?
From Jason Evans
I've said this before and I'll say it again simply because it has been alesson learned the hard way for me. You will never know who you are if all youtalk about is what you aren't.
Man, ain't that the truth. I read this yesterday and it just stuck inmy head. So what am I? I know what I am against, but putting inotwords what I am for is a lot harder.
I think that is one of the things that bothers me alot with all of the emergent and postmodern talk. I agree that there is something wrong with the church today. I agree that culture has changed alot, that there must be new thoughts and new ideas. But now I am ready to do something about it. Honestly, I am not smart enough to sit around and philosophize all day and night about deconstructionism and the like. I wish I was, but I am not.
So tell me people, both of you that read this, what are you about? What are you for? Sum up your life for me in a few words. Maybe your life as you wish it could be. Things that you wish were in your life, but aren't right now.
I'll start us off:
community, teacher, lead-minister, beloning to a place, love, husband, missionary, evangelist, prayer, helping the kingdom come on earth as in heaven
Maybe that will start it off for us.
