Old Rugged Tease

leave a comment »

But when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Matthew 6:5

But when Sagemont’s church leadership began talking only about its budgets and its personal speculations (for instance, the world ought have ended by now, if a scare-tactic “sermon” from several years back was to be believed), pointing only to their own opulence, then bye bye the humble witness of sincerely changed lives and hello to arrogant idols.

church-going type

Jen attends church this morning, and we join her, shooting for Sagemont Church‘s 11am service.

Wasn’t today when churches would usually be celebrating Palm Sunday?

been a while since we joined a methodist service: held some comforting old patterns for some of us, from th sounds to the rhythms to the reverence; but was “weird” to those of us to whom it was completely new. even so, th communion solo wasn’t th sole reason for us being here
