Interesting Meeting

I was at an interesting little meeting last night. An old pastor invited me to check it out. I was blessed by the praise/worship time. There was one aspect of the meeting that bothered me. There were people lined up talking about how great this meeting was. I don’t know what to make of this stuff sometimes.

I’ve particpated in the little charismatic group meeting before. The pattern I’ve discovered is that things often start well, but the group grows stale and becomes seemingly purposeless. As much as I have had my issues with church I see it as the only all in one solution for God’s kingdom on earth. These days I look different types of meetings and conferences and I’m just not interested anymore. I don’t really have the time or the energy to carry myself from one experience to another.

In some cases our events have become idols. We are looking towards some meeting or some annointed minister to make our lives so much better. I believe in following Jesus. Simple, straightforward, following Jesus but I’m not sure what that looks like.
