Last night after two hours of hardcore rollerblade hockey I sat in the car with Ron. I was appologizing for having to rush of right at the end to get home to my familly, it had taken longer than I expected, I wish I could have stayed end gotten to know the guys a bit.
Ron asked me if I play football, and I said no. Would I like to? Not really? There was a game with the international church last week, Ron, I said, I really don’t need to get to know any more church people….
Ah, a man like me said Ron, but I can’t bring these guys to church, for them we need something special, lika a BBQ with a professional athlete coming to witness. I am all with you Ron, I said, lets make it happen.
But it really got me thinking, why is it that our corps is not a place where we can bring our unsaved friends how have we gotten to a place where we are so far from anything we are willing to present to people from the outside. Why can’t the local corps be the place we are most eager to share withour friends. Because that is really how it should be. And the last question in my litany of question is how are we going to make it so?
