So I realised this evening that Church is a little like Family (ok, I am aware this is so not a new metaphor but I am referring to just one aspect here).

You might really dislike something about your family, complain about it or them continuously, wish it was different, make sarcastic comments about that particular family member, talk for hours about what should change…

But Heaven forbid anyone else repeats the same negative comments about your family. They are most likely to get punched in the face.

So tonight someone made a comment about my church. About an aspect of it that I too find frustrating sometimes. Something I have discussed with friends to see how we could make a positive change.

This person basically could have been quoting me.

But you should have seen how quickly my heckles went up, and the look of pure evil I gave him.

I just find that kinda interesting…
