Schedule break-in

Our church has a big sign out front that says “COME AS YOU ARE”. Today, this guy came in as he was, which necessitated changing my plans for the afternoon: from office organizing to serving my neighbor. My office was messier than I wanted when I left for the day, but I just saw the sign on my way out, and I’m kinda grateful that we can, in fact, come as we are to this place, messiness and all.

    Tom…come as you are is how I expect people would be treated in church and on christian blogs. You weren’t treated like that at our blog and I apologise for the way you encountered some of my fellow signposters.

      I appreciate the sentiment, Greg. I dunno, maybe I ducked out too early. The negative judgement was bothering me yesterday, and as I was also putting the finishing touches on our 9/11 services today, it was hard for me to be in a good spirit to attend to both. That does look like quite a blog, and I do appreciate challenge and dissent, but it didn’t come at a great time for me in the week, I suppose.

      Anyway, best to you. Thanks for reaching out.
      In peace,
