You always do such a great job of reminding me of the other side of things when I fear I am a little too narrow. Thank you!

Very articulate and relevant. I work in a youth ministry, so I get the significance of being accepting and plugged in to the real world and rubbing elbows with those who are not like-minded. It's a challenge for me personally because I work at a church. It just seems I'm always around believers. I am looking for ways to serve in the world that will put me someplace where the light in me will be of value to someone else.


So it did spark a blog note. I like it and I like the way you continue to engage your world and encourage me to do the same :) It is one of the best ways to offer an alluring hope.


Tracy, you are indeed awesome. This very thing is something that I have endured and thought for the last 8 years or so of my life. this time has been in a military environment (not exactly All God all the time). One of the easy ways that I have found to answer the "Am I a bad Christian for not telling people I am a Christian" thing is that as our co-workers/ people in our path see our lives, if we are reflecting Christ they will never even have to ask, and we wont have to share it will be obvious. As a Christian nothing make me angry than seeing people like Focus on the Family go all in on a war against Sponge Bob and his "sexual affinity" yet this same organization seems to remain quiet about things that really matter, Christian martyrs in other Coutries for instance. hopefully this makes sense.


Excellent food for thought there. Or maybe gum for thought, since it's something I've been chewing on and still am and probably will be for a very long time.
