20+10+10

Aaron and I are about to go to the fourth meeting of our church's 20+10+10 group . . . twenty/thirty-somethings. We are soooo happy to be enjoying fellowship and though-provoking conversation. These people remind me that there are still followers of Christ that are actually focused on following Christ, instead of following a religion. It is an open-minded, thoughtful, diverse group. And it is fun! I feel like I am making new friends for the first time in a long time.

We spent two weeks watching a documentary and discussing it. The movie is "Lord Save us from Your Followers." It is a hard-to-watch, cringe-inducing look at how crappy Christians can be to one another and everyone else living in this world that God so loved that He gave His one and only son, that . . . well, you know how it goes.
Take a look at the trailer if you want a taste: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKwYH1mLNvE

I agree. Many "so-called" Christians take for granted their gift of salvation and forget why they are here on earth and that the world is watching them and how (if at all) they live "like Jesus". I need a soapbox!
