DISCLOSURES

Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

The Part Is Yours... Can you hear the call?

Why am I here?



It seems like a such a simple question. This weekend I went to see Truthical at +GatewayPeople Church in Southlake, TX. The subtext:

The Part Is Yours... if you want it...  
The main character, a famous actress, is aware that there is more to life, or at least hopes there is. She receives a pamphlet for a casting call that her agent tells her to avoid. It's for a show called "Truthical". She wonders into the stage and is met by a yound lady who begins to tell her about this wonderful producer, and how there are no auditions, anyone who wants to be in the production can be in it.... you are left with a question at the end... The Part Is Yours, but...

Will you accept the part designed and created just for you?

The crux of the question is to ask a lost person if they would accept the call to accept Jesus and be saved. It's among the best evangelistic tools I've ever seen because I, yes even I, found myself weeping, and laughing, and carried away with this marvelous production to the very same question...

So after you accept the call to be saved, will you accept the calling He has placed on your life? Will you accept the part he has written just for you?

I'm saved, born again, baptised in the Holy Spirit, working my way free from Religion and toward Freedom In Him. In fact, they mentioned religious tradition in the play. The main character says: "What you mean, get religion, and follow a bunch of rules and traditions?" The guide says "No, that's a difference production. It's called Tradionical, and it's much more widely known, and has had terrible reviews!"

So why do I feel so... blank? Why do I feel like I should not just be headed toward doing something more, but actually have been doing it for a long time already by now. I feel like there is something I could have done had a taken a right turn a while back, and now I'm here wondering where here is.

After taking the Discovery path I learned alot more about who I am, and who I'm not. I know I had tedious physical work that involves manipulating minute details with my hands. Everything from wood carving to data entry to building computers is out for me. I know writing is a part of my path, which is why I'm here, writing blogs that few may ever read. I cannot help but write. And so I write.

Music? Maybe. I find music follows me whereever I go, like a lost dog asking me to take it home. But I don't find myself drawn toward it, like I do writing. Maybe I just haven't found my place in music yet.

And so... here I am, asking myself, asking God, what is my part? What was the role written just for me from before time, and how do I stop lolligaging and get to it!?

What about you? Do you know what your role is? What have you been cast for? And have you ever tried to live our someone elses role because you thought it was yours or you wanted it to be yours, only to find it didn't fit right (like taking a shower with your clothes on)? Answer in the comments below, or hit me on the twitter or Google+.

I Collect Churches

So I have a confession... I have a strange hobby. Some people collect toys, cars, stamps. Some people visit museums, zoos, arboretums.



I... collect church experiences. I visit churches and collect insights on the differences between them, leadership styles, music styles, facility choices, and the overall experience. I collect pastoral teaching and teaching styles. I collect theology and theological differences.
I didn't know it was a hobby at first. I thought I was just "looking for a home church", or looking for something I hadn't found yet. I thought I just hadn't found my place...

Some of that is true. But really, I somewhat accidentally turned studying church into a hobby. Maybe it's because I was a pastor's kid and saw some of the inside workings from a unique perspective. Maybe it's because I secretly, and not so secretly, feel I am supposed to be a pastor but I'm still trying desperately to be anything else.

Maybe it's because Church, …

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
