Broken Steeple

Steeples and spires point to the mystery of an invisible God. I believe that followers of Jesus are called to join the steeples in their humble work. Our church partners with congregations on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in the effort to revitalize the area in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. On a recent trip to Gulfport I paused at the base of the First Baptist Church's steeple. It was crumbling and broken but did its work with quiet confidence. I sensed that I had a great deal in common with that steeple. I am far from perfect and am part of an imperfect Christian community. Our flaws and brokeness, however, should not keep us from participating in the mission of God. This blog site is for all the other broken steeples that are part of God's conspiracy of grace. I am glad to be part of the conversation.
