Hi, I'm Megan. I'm twenty years old. I'm a Christian. I love television which you'll see by the abundance of fandom-y things on my blog (Teen Wolf, Community, Parks and Recreation, and Doctor Who most frequently, at this point). There are also occasional posts about theology, the Bible, God, my personal life, etc. Feel free to message me.
One chronic form of ill health [in congregations] today is what we might call the trivialization of the church. It is nice, it is friendly, it may be cute, and on occasion it is even touching. But, in the end, nothing much is at stake. Nothing of ultimate significance is evident in the church’s proclamation, sacraments, faith, and life…Conversely, a healthy congregation is one where something is at stake; where the words and the actions do matter; and where lives are being changed, healed, redirected to positive paths, and made new. Healthy congregations possess a sense of confidence in the gospel message and faith.

And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight to help you to determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless, having produced the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God
