while we cater
i'm of the opinion that folks have been in the wrong-headed practice of using it as something that it was totally not meant for. it's been used abusively as a qualifier that all to often replaces the implicate & desperate need for proper discernment. this leads to the whole hearted acceptance of things that may not be beneficial, not to mention good.
i'm a christian.
i'm not a christian father, pharmacist, t-ball coach or whatever else i may be doing @ the time. this may seem like i'm splitting hairs, but the implications can be huge if played out. i'm afraid that most would be lulled to sleep & welcome w/open arms just about anything as long as it's preceded by the word christian.
i've never wanted to be christian anything. i don't long for the things i listen to or am involved w/to be known as christian x or christian z. i do wish that the things that i put to my hand would be known for & associated w/excellence & quality.
the venue is one of those things.
this past week was our 2nd show. it also just so happened to be the independent news pick of the week. we welcome the challenge to promote & produce in the market place of clubs, bars, coffee shops & halls.
this is exactly where we need to be. not content to be the best christian this or that, but striving to be the best period. we now know that we are fully capable of that.
this is a call to all who feel fulfilled in the slums found in the shadow of the steeple...
a world dies while we cater to our own...
