Hello Blueprinters!!

As per the chat last night, here is that quote, and a bunch of blogs worth getting amongst.
Blueprint Bloggers;
Scottie Reeves
Phill Smith
Andy Tate
Debs Phillips
Will Watterson
And MASON!!! but I wont link to his blog or else Scottie will get mad.

There are bunch of other links on those blogs to other writers who are worth a gawk at.

And that amazing quote from last night, from Mike Yaconelli of Youth Specialties, I think its from his dangerous wonder column that he used to write. Anyway, its being sitting on my computer for a while. How huge is this!

See what the battle in the Church is today? It is not abortion. It is not pornography. It is not homosexuality. (or the smacking bill!!!)
It is reality.
It is honesty.

We are afraid to be ourselves, to let ourselves be known, to come out of hiding.
What the world is longing to see in the Church is not moral purity as much as moral reality. The world wants to see a Church that is made up of people who are not afraid of their blemishes, because their blemishes only point to the unblemished character of Jesus.

What we don’t understand is that when people look at the Church and see only impostors, they conclude that Jesus is an impostor. But when they see followers of Jesus who are real, they see a Jesus who is real. The Church does not need to fabricate holiness, it needs to seek holiness.Holiness is not where we arrive, but where we are going.

The power of the Church is not a parade of flawless people, but of a flawless Christ who embraces our flaws. The Church is not made up of the whole people, rather of the broken people who find wholeness in a Christ who was broken for us

    Oooh, advertising care of Sam Harvey. Ripper.

    Mind you I've mostly been posting comedy video's lately, not much theological insight there. . . .

    bojllj - The son of Lil' bow wow and J-lo? ? . . . I dunno what it's supposed to mean. .

    Hmm, so sitting here drinking Jamesons and watching the DVD of "The Insider's guide to Happiness".

    Which is absolutely great, and kind of depressing that a TV show can be more real than most of what happens in church on a sunday.

    I don't go to blueprint (past it) so perhaps blueprint is immune - but lots of other places aren't.

    Coming soon with Mason's blog, still a little editing to do before we go live.
