Admit it. You’re frustrated.

You’ve sucked it up and tolerated it because there don’t seem to be any other options.

But what if there was more? What if change was possible, and you were at the epicenter?

Did Jesus come to die so we could have church (or at least church as we see it now)? Hardly. He came for life and life to be lived to the full. Sure we’ve seen plenty of Photoshoped pictures of a full life in church ads – but does life ever feel like that?

Our faith or walk after Christ has been domesticated. It’s been neutered. It’s tame and lame.

Howard Macy put it best, “the Spiritual world cannot be made suburban. It is always frontier, and if we would live in it, we must accept and even rejoice that it remains untamed.”

On a farm, the other day, I watched a goat jump the fence and run free.

How are you planning to break free?

    Ha ha, you’re right.

    I’m out “doing it” every day (though that sounds vaguely dirty).

    It feels like there’s always a series of fences to climb or jump over on your way out. Christ is outside of those fences (though I feel like I’m prob preaching to the choir here).

    Right now I’m climbing over one particular fence and on my way out.
