Garbage Dump

I am caught up on all my work, well from the last 2 weeks at least! Today it starts all over again, meeting with clients, notes, etc, but hopefully my motivation is here to stay, and I won't get behind again!
I finally was able to blog about One Prayer at our church, so go here to check it out.
Lastly, I will leave you with this quote that I had hanging in my college dorm room, and I love it!

"If your church cannot accept the wreckage of broken homes and shattered dreams, it is not a place where Jesus lives. Your church should be the greatest garbage dump in town. A place where the broken, oppressed, misplaced, abandoned, and unloved peoples can come and find a "family" where they are accepted and loved...as is." -Dr. Joe Aldrich

I think this should probably be every church's mission statement.

Oh, I love that quote! It almost gives me chills to think about it! It seems most churches are exactly the opposite, making everyone on the outside feel like they don't belong. At least that's how I always felt before I found my church. I might have to post this on my blog...is that okay? Okay, I have to go check out your One Prayer post. Good luck keeping up with all of your work! :)

Oh wow! The church should be the greatest garbage dump in town!! Amen! I love this quote. That IS a church that looks like Jesus! And we should especially be the best recyclers, don't you think? ^_^
