You captured the innate closed mindedness well. A very clear lesson and well written too.

Ouch! Yes, the pastor lost his nose. Good story with a lot of relevance to today. I really like this line, "Your church, I thought it was God's church."

Very well done! An excellent and very pertinent example of cutting off your nose...now, if we could just get this across.

Great dialogue. A lesson to be learned here for sure.
You really illustrated the topic in this sad story of a pastor who forgot whose church it was.
You illustrate so very well the delicate balancing act within Churches today. Being relevant vs "heretical" and the "my" Church vs. God's Church.

I enjoyed reading this entry very much and thank you for the reminder!

Wowwwwww, yes. Very relevant subject here, and it helps that it is so well-written. You wrote the setting and dialogue very realistically, and I can't help rejoicing that you are bringing this up for people to think over. Our youth desperately need to be drawn into the church. Anointed piece.
