“You have never met a mere mortal: You have either known an immortal horror or an eternal splendor”

~ C.S. Lewis “The Weight of Glory”

Now that I’m not in “full-time” professional ministry I’ve had the great opportunity to work directly with many people who are not Christians, don’t like Christians and sometimes hate us.  I have asked some of them to share there story and there real view of Christians.  Why you may ask?  Given my testimony I have a passion for the outsider, though Christ seems to be drawing me to the “older brother” (focus on vs. 25 – 32), and that passion leads me into some extremely interesting conversations.  I’ve learned that each person has a story, a journey, and what many theologians call….. baggage.  I honestly want you to hear there perspectives and join me in realizing how far we have to go.  Honestly, most of you that read this probably feel that you are on mission and I’m not here to tell you otherwise but a constant reminder of why the message that we bring is so unpalatable to so many.  I love those who will be sharing with us and I pray that you will join me in praying for them and our reactions to there perceptions (right of wrong) of those of us who follow Christ.
