My kind of Christianity

THIS is the kind of Christianity we should strive for as we seek to imitate Christ and find purpose in our daily lives.

“Christianity can provide…

  • a meaning in life that suffering can’t take away
  • a satisfaction not based on circumstances
  • a freedom that doesn’t turn community and love relationships into thin transactions
  • an identity that is not fragile, not based on performance or exclusion
  • a way to deal with guilt and to forgive without residual bitterness or shame
  • a basis for seeking justice that doesn’t turn you into an oppressor yourself
  • a way to face not only the future but death itself with poise and peace

See that your indelible needs and longings for these things are actually echoes of your need for God.”
