I'll be reading this a few times, so much awesome in one post.

Thanks for writing all this down, I feel like it's a real gift.

Westwinds is kind of a synagoguey(yes I made that word up) community. I love it and I hate it. This post helps me to love and appreciate it more.


YES! The church is to be a place of worship. and learning.
but lessons are not always cut and dry. there are some things that cannot be answered in absolutes, but so often we attempt to.

i hope that more of this way of thinking emerges from our current church culture. we are not to be mindless absorbers of sermons. dive into the meaning so much deeper than the words on the page...


Good stuff. You're right. Or, maybe not. I can't really tell. I have to wait a few years and read it again to see if I still agree.

I am slightly late to the comment section, but let me say you are absolutely 100% correct for now. Before I follow you to the compound in Texas however, let me share this.

A few years ago my wife's 26 year old cousin was in the final months of her phd. She was spending the majority of her time working closely with UofF professors, all phd's themselves. She made the comment that when she and her fiance were with friends that he was to always pay close attention during conversation and stop her when she started to make things up and present them as fact. She felt that was a common trait shared by many wearing phd creds. Her sitation is completely secular, but there is a risk that the same thing happens within the church.
