I have just started reading "Unfashionable" by Tullian Tchividjian, and I am enjoying it so far. He entered a church and says, "the transcendent presence of God punctured the roof, leaving me--like Isaiah when he entered the temple--awestruck and undone...It wasn't some carefully orchestrated performance (which, believe me I would have seen right through). Rather, the people of God were simply honoring God as God....serious seekers today aren't looking for something appealing and trendy. They're looking for something deeper than what's currently in fashion. ...Younger generations don't want trendy engagement from the church; in fact , they're suspicious of it. Instead they want truthful engagement with historical and theological solidity that enables meaningful interaction with transcendent reality. They want desperately to invest their lives in something worth dying for, not some here-today- gone-tomorrow fad."

That is the same thing that God used to open my eyes to Christ when I was 16.


  1. Sounds like a good book! The truth is all that is needed. The truth is amazing!

  2. Beautiful. And I trust that he is right - I get weary of the entertainment aspect of churches these days. Very weary. We are trying to hold the line, and we lose people who don't want to really commit, but want to be entertained in a larger setting where they can seemingly be anonymous. Sad.

    Thanks for coming over. I love the pictures you put on your header.
