“I went to a strip club”

I saw this blog post and was moved. The problem with re-blogging is that readers sometimes only get a link, as in this case. But here is how it begins:

“A while back I was asked by a group of pastor’s wives to go with them to strip clubs.

That sentence alone sounds strange. But hang with me.

At first I was a little hesitant. And not for reasons you might think.

I love people. Especially ones who are broken; it’s part of my calling. But, given what I’ve walked through, I know how fragile broken people can be.

And I know how insensitive the church can be.

And I was uneasy.

But, these weren’t just any pastors wives.” continue reading…

Reaching the last, the least and the lost….

They will not seek;
they must be sought.

They will not come;
they must be brought.

They will not learn;
they must be taught.

Let us participate in acting out His love.

 

 

Spoken Word – Jackie Hill: “Gospel Discipleship”

Now, if my previous post was not sufficiently pointed about our responsibilities as Believers to actually LIVE like Believers, here is another video that is more “poetic” but with a much more challenging message – in less than 3-1/2 minutes!

(BTW, “spoken word” is a performed artistic poem that is word based. It can, but not always, include collaboration and experimentation with other art forms such as music, theater, and dance.)

Any high church/liturgical ministers/”priests” out there reading this? May this inspire you and show what you can teach and accomplish in less time than the shortest homily I have ever heard.
