Five Really Bad Reasons to Leave Your Church

Another good read from Relevant Magazine.  Thanks to Melissa for passing this along.   Unfortunately, people leave churches for all of the wrong reasons all the time.  Hopefully this will be  food for thought in case you ever personally struggle with this.  Keep the faith, brothers and sisters!

Before You Post....

Got this from Gloor, our worship minister, yesterday.  Basic message is think before your post brothers and sisters.  Sometimes you can blow your entire witness in a single post.  I have a check that I do personally and that I encourage others to do before you speak, post, tweet, vent, whatever:

1) Is it true?
2) Is it kind?
3) Is it necessary?

Christian Yoga? Now That's A Stretch

Wanted to pass this article along from Mark Driscoll that was brought to my attention from one of our elders here at Oakwood.  Though I don't agree with everything that Mark puts out, this is a very thought provoking article for any Christian to consider.  Pray and discern, and compare it to the Living Word!  (I also like his receive, reject, and restore thoughts on engaging culture.  Good stuff there.)
