I have been running a thing called the Action Group for about a year and a half…I have decided to call it quits. It’s strange but I really think this is the right thing to do.
The idea was to help the church develop into a community that actually lives up to biblical precepts/teachings about helping the ‘poor’. I have become very aware that this is not the focus of the church and likely never will be. The idea was way ahead of it’s time and the church is not prepared to become a community of people that work on behalf of society to help reduce the suffering of people within their communities. The church is just to concerned with salvation and that aspect of the gospel – weird that salvation wouldn’t be an all inclusive term for betterment as Jesus used it (here and now) – but that’s just my opinion (apparently).
I was not a good leader and I failed in a lot of aspects – and I admit that. My group never really got an acceptable level within the church – it became so marginalized it became something I did not envision…thusly I am dropping the vision altogether. Maybe some other day things will be different – and that’s the path I will now trod – awareness.
I need to move forward in life – and this group was not something I was prepared to handle anyways. I can live with failure – I find no problem with that – I will merely learn from it. So where to for me now? I haven’t a clue – but that’s the genius of life – it’s goodbye to romance today – finding another love tomorrow.
