There's Something Fishy Goin On ...
Christianity and the gospel cannot be reduced to a 'sound bite' or a 'bumper sticker' theology. Jesus is infinite. Truth is eternal. His religion is vast and deep. Jesus says to us, "go out to the deep and cast your nets." You can wade in the shallows if you want, but the *fish* Jesus wants us to catch aren't there. The fish that "feed" you and the ones you're to catch for the Kingdom are in the deep, so I'm rowing out there! Wanna come along?
I returned to the "First Pre-denominational Church of Christ," (as my husband brilliantly 'dubbed' it) aka: the Catholic Church in Dec. 2004, after my husband told me he wanted to go back to the "faith of his youth." The decision to swim across the Tiber has cost dearly, but has been worth it all! AND we are new grandparents of twin boys this summer, 2010!
