I would like to direct people to another Blog I found, and a very important, though somewhat short, message I found there.
May God Bless Jim Hollister pastor of the First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ in Sheboygan Wisconsin.
This is a pastor that seems to have it right.
I concur with Pastor Hollister and his article May Our Lives Bear Witness to the One True God.
All too often this phrase has been used to promote exclusionism in the Christian church, Jim Hollister has shown me that was a mistake. I realize that Pastor Hollister was quoting John Shelby Spong’s book, SINS OF SCRIPTURE (which I must read one day) but he focused the words well on the situation the world finds itself in today.
Thank You Jim Hollister, you have changed my mind Wisconsin is not a bad state after all. My four year old Pontiac Sunfire’s engine died there in Ashland, sorry Jim, thus Wisconsin is not one place I really want to see again, but if I do I will most definitely come to your church. 🙂
