I haven't had time to blog at all lately. My work schedule continues to be a bear. While I'm thankful for my job, it is a struggle to work 65 hours every week; I don't even know if I'm going to have any time off this coming weekend.

Despite my job, I still desire to write. Therefore, I've decided to change the format of this blog. Specifically, my posts from now on will be quite a bit shorter than they've been in the past. Some might only be a few sentences long. They may amount to little more than some things I've been thinking about. There just isn't time to write at length. Short will be the key.

That said, here's my first short post: we've made this whole church thing way too complicated. Both in our belief statements and our expectations of others, we've focused far too much on the details. It may sound simplistic and over-used, but there is much to be said for simply loving God and loving other people. Love of God is surrendering ourselves completely to his will. Loving others is serving them sacrificially. Let's focus on that for a while and see what happens.

I totally agree about simplifying church...when it becomes a must for all members of the praise and worship team to have an iPad to do Sunday worship effectively, under their mood setting blue lights, then it's time to reassess what sort of message is coming across.
