Scratching the Itch

I love our current series at Crossroads. It's helping answer questions people are asking. The series, In God We Trust, has been a good one because it is prime example of the church scratching people where they are itching.

Yesterday we focused on trusting God with our money. The failing economy is the #1 topic at the water cooler and based on a survey last August it is also the #1 issue teens are concerned with too. Last week I was saddened to hear of the Home Depot and Starbucks closures and the layoffs at Granger - just to name a few companies\organizations who have been affected in this crunch. Under such circumstances sometimes our faith and trust is rocked. We experience a bit of a faith-quake. We have questions and are looking for God's answers.

I literally sat in our service yesterday and thought about how people are connecting with God through the message, receiving hope, and even though we do not claim to have all the answers, are receiving some biblical action steps for their lives.

As we lead our congregations I also think of the message of this video clip constantly as a reminder of just how much the Church needs to scratch the itch.

God help us to continue to be the church that you want us to be... a church of light, salt, and hope. Help us to not turn a deaf ear to those who are seeking after you.

    They didn't just say "Anything goes" and "Unitarian" in the same sentence?!

    O snap, I just preached about God's love this Sunday. I have to admit I didn't address any of the hard questions about it. Hmm... possible upcoming sermon series???
