Instead of trying to welcome people to Connection, what about being able to be welcomed by our community? Instead of trying to fill out our building with people on Sunday, what about trying to have a strong representation of us in the midst of the place we live? Instead of planning for Sunday, what about planning for every day of the week? What if instead of programs we create events where the arts in all its forms can be share to every person and we become comunicators of diversity, justice, and harmony among each other? What if we can be an influence of education and acceptance in our city?
We, as Christians, are usually described as closed minded people by others outside of our belief and I truly agree with them, because for a moment I can be temporarily insane when I am not willing to think and re-think. Aristotle said, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it” Albert Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. So why we keep doing the same? How can we become open minded people willing to rethink, recreate, rebuild, and re-transform? and leave the “If it ain’t broke then don’t fix it” mentality.
Are we really willing to change? I am, but I do not know where and how to start.
