- — Adam Heff (@geekchicohio)Sun, May 04 2014 04:25:48In our continuing church search (Surch? Chearch?) Liss & I decided where we're going tomorrow, now listening to last week's message: Nonono
- I had hoped that a series on the film would be more along the lines of "It's not biblical, but here's what is..."Then I made this brief aside, about a real conversation:
- — Adam Heff (@geekchicohio)Sun, May 04 2014 04:43:43I joked with a gay & a trans friend "what I'm looking for in a church" is the ability to look them in the eye while attending. Tall order.
- And after switching off Pastor Jesus-Is-Like-A-Greg-Kinnear-Movie, I tuned into a new one and started explaining:
- — Adam Heff (@geekchicohio)Sun, May 04 2014 04:45:49So I've been skimming through podcasts of some local churches just now.. it's how I found that bit about Heaven is for real is for real *ugh
- — Adam Heff (@geekchicohio)Sun, May 04 2014 04:46:37I'm listening to a guy right now who recommended his church read McLaren. & called McLaren, Don Miller, RHE, Rob Bell et al modern prophets
- — Adam Heff (@geekchicohio)Sun, May 04 2014 04:47:34I teared up instantly, and forget our previous plans, we're going to this guy's church tomorrow. I just decided. holy shit. pun intended.
- Language. #sorrynotsorry
- — Adam Heff (@geekchicohio)Sun, May 04 2014 04:49:05God works in great ways, he made sure this pastor would name-drop all my favorites in the beginning of his sermon where I'd be sure to hear
- — Adam Heff (@geekchicohio)Sun, May 04 2014 04:54:46Tomorrow I'm seriously going to tell this gentleman that I heard his sermon from last week at 1AM and changed my plans for this morning.
- (I really did).
- — Adam Heff (@geekchicohio)Sun, May 04 2014 05:00:30He's addressing specifically the authenticity problem with the label Christian. Trends of people following Jesus but not liking "Christian"
- — Adam Heff (@geekchicohio)Sun, May 04 2014 05:09:17He's wrapping all of this around 1Cor. Becoming all things to all people. "Are you drawing people into your life? Or repelling them?"
- I still recommend going to mayfieldchurch.com and listening to "Attitude Shift," it's that good.
The Night I Discovered Mayfield Church
A few Saturday nights ago Melissa and I decided on the church we'd be visiting the following morning. She went to bed and I started listening to podcasts. Then I changed our plans.
