Q & R: Chuch?

Here’s the Q:

It was a breath of fresh air to hear your opinions in this documentary [Hellbound]. Is there a church that you go? I have been in Recovery from alcoholism for 27 years and have found a loving God, but no church. Maybe I don’t need one, but to be with like minded, principle striving people is uplifting.

Here’s the R:
Thanks for the kind words. Yes, my wife and I are part of a church here in our little town. After being a pastor for 24 years, I know how much it takes to keep a church healthy and strong over many years, and so we are especially grateful. I hope you can find a church in your area … I know it’s not easy. One of the best ways – ask people whose way of life you respect where they go, and if you can visit with them some time. I think you’ll benefit greatly by being with “like-minded, principle-striving people” – and I think they’ll benefit from your presence as well. Not only that, but together, you can make a difference in your community and world.
