So...warning. I'm kinda ranting here. 🙂 A family member of mine recently got diagnosed with Lyme. Since then, while sharing this recent discovery with her friends/family, many have asked her, "Do you think that's really what it is? Are you sure Lyme is really what you have?"

Things Destined to Perish

The Heart of Worship
Christ can work wherever he chooses. In any denomination, any church style.
The style is not what matters.

A church building may be aesthetically appealing – or its music sweet to the ear – and this does not necessarily mean that the focal point of the church is entertainment.
It takes vision and discernment of the Spirit to know who is at the center of the church, regardless of the material surroundings and aesthetics, or lack thereof.
The question is, are the worshipers within still able to meet God in a different – perhaps less comfortable or familiar – church setting?
