Today we had a new member’s welcome lunch today at our church.
During the gathering we each had a time to share a bit of our story.
Near the end of the circle we got to a man who declared: “I’m an asshole who is in need of salvation.”
I loved his response.
I loved his honesty.
He even said “asshole” twice.
It was funny to observe the reactions around the room…
The conservatives twisted and turned in their seats.
The liberals laughed along with him.
The church is a place and should be a place where people can be honest, right?
