If you gave it a name?

I have only got a few thoughts today.

This mornings sermon included a film about Greece called 'The human cost of the Euro' and suggested the extraordinary idea that all this mess might not in fact have been caused by the banks, quantitative easing or the Greeks at all but by something called 'sin'. Whatever will be suggested next?.....

All the men of the church got a copy of 'Sorted' for Fathers Day.

I have been reading a book about evangelicalism, a descriptor a hugely diverse group of Christians are sometimes labelled with, and it starts like this:

"Recent studies indicate that evangelical Christians are known by the world as people who are narrow minded, judgemental, self-righteous, legalistic, callous, hard-hearted, politically partisan, and quick to attack their own. Why is this and is there a viable cure?"

It contains within it this quote and has left me tons to reflect and muse on (v quick read-only 80 pages and packed with quotes and interesting perspectives for any theology wonks out there):

"You can assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out God hates all the same people you do" Anne e

In time, I will write a few thoughts about it.
