My brother and I were talking two nights ago and I wanted to share the takeaway from our conversation: We're tired of pastors over emphasizing Bible reading. It often becomes the only application point in sermons. What if we emphasized love in action instead? What if we used scripture as a tool to educate us, motivate us and shape us toward living out love? But most sermons are like a friend encouraging us to read "How to go on a date" over and over and never actually... Go on a date.
@DanDrake Yes! And it would be nice if we used scripture (the bible) as a tool to emphasize love in action but we also emphasize that it’s not the only scripture. My foundation is still Christ but Buddhists Jews and others have some good things to say.
@DanDrake “The spirit of the Divine is the spirit of creativity itself.” Boom! Nice!
I realized this one day listening to Elton John, whether you’re a fan or not. How the hell can he have such inspiring music when the church says he is a heathen. How can you deny the inspiration coming from him is from the spirit of Divine creativity.
@Tonyward I freaking LOVE Elton John. Exactly.
