Some of you go to church.
Some of you don’t.
Some of you go to church and wish you did not.
Some of you don’t go to church and wish you did.
I want to know something.
WHY do you go to the church you go to?
WHY do you not go to the church you do not go to?
Where and why or why not?
The image above is a once in a lifetime shot.
This is what many pastors tell us salvation looks like.
I’m screwed then.
Cause mine didn’t look like that.
Mine looks more like the process of an oak tree growing from seedling to adult.
I feel like the process of my salvation is continuing.
Sure I feel that if I die right now, I’m going to heaven.
But if that is the point of Salvation, then am Read more.
Yesterday I didn’t go to a church building.
Yesterday I spent 30 minutes in the word.
Yesterday I slept in till 11.
Yesterday I had fellowship with my wife and kids.
Yesterday I was in my pajamas until 2 pm.
Today I just admitted to wearing pajamas.
Yesterday one of my kids asked if we were “going to church today”.
Define something for me…
Did I go to church yesterday?
Every once in a while I run across a company that I think is doing something truly valuable for the church. My friend Mark at videoannouncements.tv

I had no tripod or steady cam so forgive my shaky hands.
I’m glad I got to live a piece of this story.
I’m also glad I missed the meetings I was supposed to have on Monday.
Cause they were canceled…
Don’t forget to get up and do something…
It’s better that way…
