I read a lot of blogs and keep up to date via Google Reader.
I found this cartoon this week on Naked Pastor. David, aka Naked Pastor, sums up a lot of my fears in his cartoons. This none in particular hits the nail on the head of what, to me, is wrong with a lot of what we call church. A number of people I seem to engage with during the week seem to have this image of church – an image where thinking is controlled.
I don’t wish to be part of something which aims to control how we think or what we believe. I want to be part of something that explores together and learns from each other as we journey with each other.
