Episcopal Diocese Wants 'Abandoned' Churches Back Christianpost.com- Christian News Online , Christian World News
I don't think I'd hesitate a bit to let them have the buildings back. God's strength is not exhibited in property ownership.
I was thinking today of how powerful it would be for Christ to gather, like a hen gather's her chicks, my family, the family of my ex, my ex's second husband's family, my ex's current husband's ex ...about thirty people when you start linking them all together, to a place where we could all come humbly before God and worship him in study, song, prayer, and fellowship. Divorce is the stuff that holds people back in life. The fights between the parents divide the children and make them double-minded, never knowing what to trust or whether anyone can really be trusted. Wow would it be awesome to take Satan out at the ankles and begin a community with those that say they are devoted to Christ yet cannot love their enemies.
I'll suggest it next time I meet with my ex and her pastor.
