Lock Stock and Barrel





Lock Stock and Barrel

It’s easy to let church become a conscience appeasing thing, something I feel like I must do to continue in life. What a breath of relief it is to realize this is wrong, and so easy to switch tracks. And, live fully in the present. Grounded, trusting - pressing on. For a few of us, not all I think, the church experience as a whole just doesn't satisfy - contain all that we are. We feel constrained, squeezed into a mold. But God wants all of us, as we are - lock, stock and barrel.

No I'm not saying leave church, just saying if you are jumping through hoops to not feel like an outsider, like me, you might not entirely fit into the human social dynamics there. And, it's okay.
