Living Waters








Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters. Living Waters.


If you are curious as to why I repeated the same words over & over again, well I'll tell ya.

This morning, at LIVING WATERS, I got into a conversation with my friend Dan. (That is his photo showing off his buff-ness after a successful bowling game...apparently.) He runs our web page, and he did some type of management thing on it this past week. I have no idea how something like this works, but he did some sort of search thing and found out that my blog is in the top 10 sites that direct people to our church. I think he told me #6 actually.

Well, that simply will not do. I have to be in the top 5 at least. So I figure that if I simply saturate this post with the name, the Google search engine will push me up there. (I am a vain, vain man.)


Actually, talking about a particular church that you may or may not go to is a funny thing. First off, no one can actually "Go to Church." It's not physically possible. The bible makes it clear that the church is not a building. The church is actually the various Believers when they are grouped together. So, you can't really GO to something that you already ARE.

It makes it difficult often when in a conversation and this subject comes up. However, just as an experiment, try it some time. See what happens when you use the word "Church" in it's proper meaning, and just call the building a building.


Anyway, I will now say something that you don't often hear: My Church Is FUN!

Shocking, I know, but it's true. Living Waters is a fun group of folks. Sunday mornings there is my favorite time of the week. You don't often get that when people talk about going to a particular worship service. Usually, people get the impression that a church service is boring at best. Often it is extremely formal and stuffy. This is particularly odd to me, because if you actually bother to study the life of Jesus, he was anything but dull, formal or stuffy. People really liked to hang out with him.

Isn't it interesting that it was the professional religious class of people that had the biggest problems with Jesus? There's a lesson in that if you think about it for a bit.


Well, if you are ever in the Twin Cities area, and you want to start your Sunday with some fun, fellowship and group of folks who have fun with each other, feel free to swing by Living Waters.

If you are a decent person, Dan's daughter, Cassie, might even make you a name tag.

Peace

Joe
