because so many of the fights / issues / arguments are not about substance [although they are often couched in those terms] but about style. styles that have moved beyond being guidelines and have been turned into rules.

i like you and your church. the problem i see with most churches today is that there is this desire to be the biggest and the best, no matter of worship style, denomination, etc. God called us to none of that. christ said Love, God said love. him first and then our neighbors. the church, upon getting it right, will end poverty, will end wars, will end violence and heal broken hearts all because the love we share for one another will be too overwhelming for this world to not want to be a part of... kind of how it was intended in the first place. i dont think that these things are on our minds... the majority of us that call ourselves christians. (sadly, the american dream has infected our global/spiritual calling to allegiance to a God that sees past boundaries.) if churches, would act as the church, i wouldnt have this hesitation/fear in my spirit to wear blue jeans to my old church... or i wouldnt care about how my drums sound in the mix at front of house. none of that would matter, because the likemindedness of bringing heaven to earth would be intoxicating.

i cant wait to be back playing at OAk leaf for easter!
