How cool is it that the same God who created mountains and oceans and galaxies looked at you and thought the world needed one of you, too.

Mindful Christianity

Church is not supposed to be a place of theological "purity" or a rigid conformity to certain beliefs and conventions, but a mishmosh of believers, doubters, dissenters, and malcontents, each of whom is grappling in his or her own way towards a mystery that is God.

Amen
