Matters of the Heart: The perfect church?
There is no such thing as a perfect church. We don't come to church to be with people who are like us in the way we want them to be. We come because we have staked our souls on the fact that Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and the church is the best place, the only place, to be while we are all on a spiritual journey to figure out what that means. We are called to a faith that has two scandals - that God loves you - and that God loves everyone else.
