wow. great observations and truth.
You kept my attention! Very thought-provoking.
You've really put a lot of thought and heart into this story. Some readers may wonder about the sweeping generalization of 'stained glass churches' though.
Very, very thought provoking. I especially liked the parallels between the flowers that could not survive in the 'world' because they have no scent to attract insects and the 'sunday christians': if we do not carry the 'scent' of the Lord into the outside world, how can we attracts others to Him? Intelligently written piece. God bless.
An interesting comparison.
The story is well written... great imagination, etc. Certainly the church needs a call to wake up and this take a great swing at that goal. Very good! My only concern with this piece is that I don't think the compasison quite connects. Perhaps if you compared the "Sunday-morning Christian's" faith with the hothouse flower... neither able to survive outside their enclosure... it would have been a touch more direct. Either way, though, excellent work.
Very well written comparison! Good job!
A great analogy. Skillfully you bought your character to a place of revelation, leaving me with the hope of possible spiritual awakening.
Excellent linking to the topic, thought provoking. Well done.
Very thought provoking! And sadly, how true. thank you for this entry. I like it!
