A lot of great insights from Jesse! Yes, there are real problems in American churches – Yes, there is always room for reform – Yes, BUT – when put in perspective, a lot of times we have it easy, we have it good. It’s always good to be able to see through the eyes of others, and when we do often our problems don’t seem so big or the solutions seem that much clearer. Great thoughts on what committing to Church community looks like (not a buffet!), on the value of persisting loyally even when in disagreement, on how to approach reform when problems are apparent, and how to keep in perspective what real persecution looks like!
