Today is my first day back in the office since December 23. The past week and a half has been full of much needed rest and refreshment…and today I am hitting the ground running.
We kicked off the New Year at MCC by spending some time reflecting on an idea that is central to who we are as a church: You can come as you are!
Of course this means that you don’t have to wear a three piece suit to come to church, but deeper than that, it means that you don’t have to have it all figured out. You don’t have to be perfect or pretend to be perfect. You don’t have know all there is to know about God, Jesus, or the Bible.
You just have to come…just as you are…and you will find God’s arms, wide open, to love and receive you.
How does this idea of “come as you are” land in your life?
