A fascinating comment on Dan Dick’s blog tells the story of a cradle Methodist’s struggles with the UMC and the discovery of the Triune God that has invigorated her faith. In the comment she lists some things that energize her right now:
All I want is to go to church and learn there is a bigger and better story than mine going on.
And then I want to learn how to fold myself into that story:
Who is this God?
What has He done?
What is He currently doing?
How do I become a Christian?
How do I remain (and thrive/grow) as a Christian?
Let’s quit talking about how to “fix this” and start “telling each other the story of Jesus”.
