For the past 7 weeks at Calvary we have been on a “sorry” journey — as in an “apologizing” journey. It’s a teaching series called UNchristian: Confessions of a Recovering Church. We’ve been looking at six critiques that next gen people outside the church — have of the church. The top four are…
- 1. Anti-gay
- 2. Judgmental
- 3. Hypocritical
- 4. Too Political
It’s been a challenging and rewarding series. Challenging to take an authentic look at the places we don’t measure up as ambassadors of Jesus. Rewarding to receive so many comments, e-mails and conversations from people who have been hurt by the church but are making their way back now.
So two things which may be of interest: Emily — from Calvary — sent me a link to an “apology” from Shane Claiborne. Shane is interesting to look at…and he has a heart for Jesus and the poor. It’s a good refresher course of sorts for the series. Click Shane’s Apology to read it.
Secondly if you didn’t get a chance to listen to one of more of the apologies, you can listen online at Calvary UNChristian.
