I just loved this blog post by The Defeated Victor called, “Dear Church.” You should go read it, it’s brief and heartfelt. Give Dominick a hug while you’re there, too.
Over the years I’ve probably visited dozens of churches in my neck of the woods and I’ve really struggled to put into words what exactly I’ve been looking for. Often I’ve been left saying something vague about how, “it’s really dark out there” or “I need refuge.” He says it so much better.
The world will just chew you up and spit you out, and half the time some of our wounds are probably self inflicted, but we’re all in the same boat, seeking the Great Physician.
Even if you think you don’t need the church, the church sure needs you.
