Finding Our Way Again

I closed my sermon today with a reading from SPUMC member April Doss’ poignant blog posting about the ways we lock ourselves off from the grace of God while all the while God is ready and waiting to help us find our way back to the path. You can read her full posting here (and while you are there, you may want to check out her most recent post on why she loves Ash Wednesday, as well).

Every day during Lent on Facebook we are sharing a quote from one of the books that we are studying during this holy season. Here’s today’s selection:

“The life-and-death question for each of our churches and denominations may boil down to this: are we a club for the elite who pretend to have arrived or a school for disciples who are still on the way?” (Brian McLaren, Finding Our Way Again: The Return of the Ancient Practices).
