Keeping it Real at the Hospital

Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven.

And churches aren’t supposed to be meeting places for the holier than most crowd either.

It just seems that way sometimes.

Jesus said it’s the sick that need a doctor, not those who think they are well,or at least are trying to act like they’re well.

That being said in reality a church should really be a spiritual hospital with Dr. Jesus as the Great Physician.  Allot of churches are finally getting that. Thank God mine is one them.

We recognize that there are allot of hurting people out there who if they have to pretend everything’s perfect in their life they’re going to explode.

At Grace Fellowship in the Albany NY area we just started a whole bunch of workshops on a whole slew of issues. Everything from dealing with various addictions, to caring for elderly parents, to Understanding Depression.

The latter was the one that caught my eye.

Most of the time I talk about spiritual issues over at “Lucky Loser” but this needed to be said here.

If your house of worship isn’t a place where there’s a safe place to let your guard down you need to find a place where you can.

Imagine a hospital in the natural  where you had to act like you were well most of the time.

That would suck rotten eggs wouldn’t it?

    Great post, very encouraging.

    Sadly I can’t say exactly the same of where I used to worship (I have just left) although it really was so very good in so many ways.

    Keep on blogging and encouraging,
    God bless you.
