I love how you never even mention the word "church", and that you used her perception of the church in the beginning (stark, modest, plain decor...) and at the end (bright and beautiful) as props to describe the MC's funk and enlightenment. Excellent technique! The MC seemed real to me - nice characterization. I could relate to her malaise! But then to counter it with what she heard from the pulpit - ah, such great truth! This is very well done ~ to the glory of God!

This was a fantastic insight that often stumps people, and very well done. I only pondered "weak" ahead, and wondered if it should be "week." The more I pondered that, I came up with so many thoughts that I wondered if that was your purpose to spell it that way! We are all "weak" vessels of Christ.
You spoke for all of us and you spoke it well! I too, was impressed how you never mentioned church. This is encouraging for everyone as I believe everyone has felt this exact same way at one time or another. You drove it home with the importance of doing "it all" for the Glory of God! Amen and thank you for such a gentle reminder.
Thank you for sharing, this was just what I needed to be reminded of.

A very different approach to the topic and way of delivering a universal truth. Great job.
