High Collision Intersection…
Once and a while I see an unusual road sign that catches my attention, like the one I saw in the Florida Keys a couple of years ago “Gator Crossing”.
Yesterday, I saw this sign while driving through rural Ontario. MJ and I stopped to get a picture.
Of course, I could not help think of the church. “Change” seems to be a common buzz word as it relates to the church these days. The very mention of the word should cause us to post a sign “high collision intersection” ahead.
Change need not lead to a collision, if we simply take the necessary precautions at the intersection. If we would stop, look both ways, give attention to others on the road, and then proceed, the church could avoid a potential collision. It is when we do a “running stop”, or don’t stop at all, and try to beat the other person on the road to change, that we are in danger of having a confrontational collision.
If the church as we know it is to survive in the future, change is inevitable. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just meet at the intersection of change, proceed with caution, and arrive safely at the destination that God has for His Church?
Just something to think about?
Until next time…
P.S. Take a look at last week’s blog (“Tonight, I will either be in jail, or I will be free…”). I have added some awesome pictures of the underground tunnels built for the “Freedom – seekers” and a picture of the Moses stained glass window.
