Happy 50th Anniversary!

Many Christians try to fit God into a box.  We call that box our church and we think that the boxes we each create is the only box or the right box. It is after all the box where we are most comfortable.

I believe that God meets us where we are at. Some like to sing and dance in the worship service. God accepts their worship.  Some feel comfortable with rituals; kneeling for some prayers, standing for others.  God set up rituals/traditions for the Jewish people because he understood they needed that. We each choose a church that we feel comfortable attending. We choose boxes that look and feel god to us.  They add the color to our world that we need added. 

At work they tell me that I like to play in other peoples sandboxes. So it shouldn't be surprising that I'm doing the same thing at home.  I am not Catholic but I periodically attend a Catholic church.  My brother and sister-in-law are Catholic.  Her uncle is a priest and in the "small world" that we live in I purchased my last house about two blocks from his church. I had the absolute blessing of attending a special mass celebrating the 50th anniversary of Fathers Jack Brunner and Richard Gross. As they said today, being a priest isn't simply a vocation. It is a way of life.

It was a beautiful service and afterwards the parishoners served a delicious meal. Congratulations men and thank you for your years of serving God.
