port city community church!!!

this is a church i just visited in Wilmington, NC called PC3. they had awesome worship music, atmosphere and the most loving people i have ever seen in one place.
check the site out!

"Mission... it is such a buzz-word these days. But just because it's a buzz doesn't mean it doesn't matter! At PC3, our mission is to reach people and help them walk with God. This is what we do. We do not invest time or energy into anything else. "
"At Port City, we understand that we cannot change anything... that is God's job! So what we do is create environments where people can connect with God and one another and trust God to move and do what it is that He does... We use the term ENCOUNTER!"

Holy or not, who cares?

even though its old news by now i cant help but bring up those Prophet Muhammad cartoons that gained so much press for offending so many people. i hate to say it but Muslims may need to brace themselves for this kind of thing. look around at what america has done to Jesus. there are Jesus figurines, He is depicted as cartoon characters on several shows, south park prob the worste for that, and the symbol of the cross has pretty much lost all meaning to the average American citizen. Jesus is easily the most powerful name in all the world, our annual time table is based on him, yet He and His principles are degraded and trampled on openly everyday. do i believe its wrong? yes. but is it a constitutional right?? yes, and unfortunatley, human respect and compassion have nearly been lost at the cost of some people's audacity.

well well well...

even though its been like 3 months since an update has been done, i figure it wont hurt to start agian and put this out there.
i feel like faith in general is being put to the test today. it seems that if you have religion with a belief in God then you are seen as weak. i say this because i am in a season now where i feel that my faith is continually being attacked by stereotypes and hypocracy. maybe i shouldnt take many things personally, but i feel the need to convince people that the change that has happened in my life is real, its the only realness i have, and i want people to understand exactly where i am coming from.
in the political realm, bush is continually criticised and lumped in with extremists that act in the name of Christianity. i do not and cant defend everything that he has done, cause its not ALL right but the stereotypes are not right and not fair at all. as if Christians are some irritating race of people that should be kept far away from normal people. i strongly support separation of church and state, but not separation of God and state. if a man believes in God, should that put ANY restrictions on him????
