This is biblically encouraging post that will help keep you faithful to our missional call.
I love Ugandan worship. Not just the preaching but also the singing part of worship. After I preached in this church the pastor taught the people a new song. Giving thanks for butter on their bread and sugar in their tea! Who would have thought of such things? Gifts from God. So so wonderful! Enjoy the video. (The dancing is addicting. Hard to come back to Orange County and sing like sticks.)
The leader in this video is a young man named Titus. He is an aspiring pastor and was in my class in December. The church does not have enough money to buy instruments, but when they do, the first one they will buy will be the drums! I think it is a very good song, and one that maybe we should adopt in America. It begins with “You send me on my way…”
Social media is not community – digitized relationships? Twitted zingers? What’s that? There’s a Toyota Venza commercial that features a social media addict, complaining about others who have only 19 friends on Facebook – get a life she bemoans.
What does it mean to be a real person. And what it mean to have real community. Gotta have it to be a real Christian. Porching is a step in the right direction.
I want to be on both porches and just listen. Don’t you?
