  1. Wow–this is a good quote, Erika. Multitasking is “costly to the soul.” Something to ponder. Not a favorable position for all the companies who make things to make our lives easier . . . phones that take pictures, ovens that cook our dinner while playing music, etc. An unpopular sentiment, but one worthy of significant consideration! What is the cost of this life we are living in terms of our spirit, our soul, our heart? I need more time to think about this.

    Thanks for sharing it.

  2. Erika, what a great story. We do often judge people on perceived motives when we really don’t know what is in their hearts. I have a friend who didn’t grow up in the church. I connected her with our church, and she attends a different one now. Her kids grew up in a church as a result, and when she changed churches (for a job as a vocal soloist) her younger daughter continued to be active at our church. It is difficult for those who didn’t have the opportunity when younger to understand and connect with a faith community, but when they do it can make a huge difference in their lives.

    This is an example of what I used to tell you about there being huge spiritual needs in suburbia and that urban ministry, however important, is not the only place where ministry makes a big difference in peoples lives. Thanks for sharing this, and I hope you can find time to contribute more of this kind of thing to your blog. We miss it.
