Chop em down, chop em down

Tuesday February 6th, Isaiah 6: 12 until the LORD has sent everyone far away and the land is utterly forsaken. 13 And though a tenth remains in the land, it will again be laid waste. But as the terebinth and oak leave stumps when they are cut down, so the holy seed will be the stump in the land." Often, when you leave a stump, and give it time, a new sprout appears. Often, when God wants us to do something, the first thing that needs to happen is to unlearn all the ways we think it should be done. Is Church the best way to do church? Do we have to meet on Sunday? Do we have to follow the lectionary? All those things that occupy “church” are really up for grabs. If you don’t throw a monkey wrench into once in a while, it simply becomes a club where people gather to do what they always do so they can feel good that they have done it. Perhaps you need to chop down a tree to allow the Gospel to grow.
