I wrote this post putting my letter to the editor in the Sarnia paper about churches in Sarnia needing to step up and actually fulfill our mission to do what Jesus has called us to do.
A guy from Sarnia found it, his blog is called Sarnia Skeptic. He commented on the post a few times. Then he wrote a post on his site and blasted at theStory and me a little bit on his latest post (the beauty of leaving our budget online, we become an open book to criticism, but it’s one step in the right direction ) and for the most part he’s right on. Anyway, I thought you guys may enjoy the post a little bit, but I’m more curious about what your thoughts are on it.
I’m sort of at a loss of what to say. Many of the things he said were valid and demand answers. Others, I just want to fill up his comments section with reasons and excuses as to why theStory is different. But like I ask myself everyday, are we? Are we really that different or do we just sit on couches and do potlucks and convince ourselves that we are better than everyone else? Most of the time I don’t feel like we are all that different. However, I do think we are at least heading in the right direction, even if it takes us ten years to get there. I don’t think you can just turn a beast around, I do wish it would be a lot faster than its going though. We have a long way to go.
