This weekend at Calvary we hit week #2 of our new teaching series, UNchristian: Confessions of a Recovering Church. This week our Jesus-story was his encounter with a woman at a well, and our apology was for the times when we (Christians) don’t care about people who don’t want to join our religion.

The last two weeks I have had so many e-mails from people who have been hurt in the past, by people who claim to follow Jesus. My heart breaks. At the same time I have seen people at Calvary who have aimed their lives in Jesus’ direction — and when many people do that, even church can become a “well” where people can encounter Jesus. But don’t wait for the weekend… go find a well. Find a place where you can rub shoulders with people. Seek out conversations with people who need hope and let them see Jesus on your face.
Today I received this video — it’s a great reminder of our story this weekend. (Thanks Joyce!)
