Hi Wellspring!

Well, I hear that some of the men of Wellspring had a fun time last night, even if the Astros were jinxed by Jay’s presence.

I wanted to share with you all something that I found interesting at Pathway this weekend. They had a guest speaker – the father in law of the regular pastor was visiting from DC. He is a pastor on Capital Hill. He explained to us how he talks about God in non-churchy terms to the politicians who may not have been exposed to Christianity much or who have a different focus. He explained it like this…

Think of heaven as a place. Think of where you are now – that’s a place too, right? So basically what happened was God was at his place. Decided to come down to our place to hang out with us for a little while. Took our place. So he could bring us back with him to his place when we get done here.

I just thought it was interesting. I’m probably not doing it justice, but it does help to just think about the language we use when we talk to people who don’t have a church background. We have to meet them at their place, you know?
