Thoughts on Thursday – How do you share the gospel with someone who hates you?

Watch this to get an idea of how the gospel can transform the way we retaliate towards others.

How does the gospel transform the way we relate to those who would be our enemies?

This is enmity towards enmity at its best.

If the Church Can’t Join in this Song, Then Why Be a Church?

Pearl Jam “The Fixer”

Can’t wait for this new album. I like this video. There’s something about the heart of the song that I love and think it gets at some of the reason why I want to be part of a movement of churches that do kingdom expanding ministry.

Here are the lyrics. Enjoy the video!

When somethings dark, let me shed a little light on it
When somethings cold, let me put a little fire on it
If somethings old, I wanna put a bit of shine on it
When somethings gone, I wanna fight to get it back again…

When somethings broke, I wanna put a bit of fixin on it
When somethings bored, I wanna put a little exciting on it
If somethings low, I wanna put a little high on it
When somethings lost, I wanna fight to get it back again…

When signals cross, I wanna put a little straight on it
If there’s no love, I wanna try to love again
