Perspective

Perspective is a beautiful thing. I've been in church for 28 years so I've heard every reason why people "can't make it" to church. All so often "can't make it" translates into "don't want to make it" and to me that's sad. A week or two ago Pastor Jim found something out about a couple of the kids who attend the Vineyard Westside's kids church. He found out that they walk to church. Ok, so a lot of people walk. The thing is, these kids don't live that close to the church. It takes them an hour of walking to get there. Not only do they walk an hour, they are consistently early. They attend the early service, are early for it, and they walk an hour to get there. I think that helps to put the "I can't make it" attitude into perspective. So, "can you" make it this week?

(The kids in this story don't have to walk anymore. Pastor Jim picks them up.)
