I do think that there is a talent that only Christians possess - the ability to make a non-issue blow up into something hugely gigantic just by "trying to care".
But on talents, I think it is time to refocus on what I used to see as my main strength.
There are too many issues with the stage that I am too tired to work through, and have no time to think about. It is something I am too unsure about.
Thinking about it, the issue stems from overprotectiveness, and the tendency to not do something just because the world has made it something bad. How about how the church can make it something good?
Maybe it is also time to get away again. There is something about this place that makes me afraid to be all that I want to be. There is something about this place that makes me care too much about what other people think. The issue here is really not about what other people think, but about what I think other people will think.
Who the heck cares about what other people think when I think that it's something God wants me to do?
(But if it backfires, I still have to face their I-told-you-so's.)
Do you gather faith like poppies?
Maybe I should just make a stand and strike out where I want to.
I do not wish to be afraid.
