awkward and insecure

to my disenchanted, disenfranchised friends

brothers and sisters

there is hope

you may think that change is seemingly impossible – that reevaluation is out of the question

you see a dying church

irrelevant
impotent
incapable

and you may very well be right in most of these accusations

however, there is hope

problem is – that hope may very well be found in you (actually, not a problem in my mind)

I know your love for Jesus
I know your love for people

and believe me, I know there is a lot to dislike about the Church – but don’t lose your love for it

and if you have already ‘fallen out of love’ – see her again with new eyes

that awkwardly insecure little girl looking for love and life and meaning – just waiting for you to gently take her hand (even though she probably doesn’t even realize it)

join me – not with all the answers, but with a deep desire to see her become the beautiful woman our God created her to be
