I believe the church is called to be more than what most people see right now – and am thankful for the grace of God that allows us to keep falling and trying to get back up and to become here what we are in His dreams. I am employed by one particular congregation that (like every other congregation) sometimes falls short of His ideals. Even though I’m on staff at the Oakland Church of Christ in Oregon, this blog only represents my own thoughts and opinions and is not filtered by any OCC policy or procedures. If you find something you don’t like here, please don’t hold it against them… just blame me and let’s work it out. Thanks.
