Through the Looking Glass


If your view of the Church can be made without a mirror you may need to reexamine your position.

HEY!!! Why didn't someone tell me I had ketchup on my shirt? (Look, it's shaped like the Virgin Mary!)

Haha dorsey, you're sooo funny!

Kc, that's a great thought. I just asked myself if my view of the church was made with or without a mirror, and I find that it would be a great idea for the gathering place to be filled with mirrors all round. What to you think? ;-)

As I have heard from my 10-year-old many times in the past few days, "True, dat."

I think I've typically used a mirror - BUT - I've always been at the center of it. I wonder what that reveals about me?? ;-)

But wait! I thought the church was all about controlling the behavior of others!?

It is, Joe. The mirror is so you can see who's looking over your shoulder (or sneaking up on you [or talking about you behind your back]). I never seemed to need one at my old church, 'cause my back was always against the wall. hehe

Seriously KC, your point is well made. It actually brings to mind this excellent discussion from a year ago.

An ecclesiology that does not involve constant and excruciating (from the latin root, excrucio, where crucify comes from) self-examination, just does not measure up.

(hey, I think I just came up with another point of Dorsism!)

Excellent thought, KC. We do need to examine ourselves often to make sure we are lined up with God's Word. We need to look at our church with our eyes open, and be honest with ourselves about what we see.

I don't have to point the mirror toward MYSELF do I?!?

Hmph!

I love you guys!

Dorseism is fast replacing kcisim around here! (Save the shirt bro. We’ll need some signs and wonders to get the ball rolling hehe)

Kitty that would be wild. I’m a fan of the Noah’s Ark layout with a window in the ceiling. ;-)

Janice I think you get them all. I just don’t type them right. ;-)

Missy good point. I guess if we use a mirror and can only see our self we better question our position then too, huh?

Joe I’m afraid too many would agree with that!

Amy it’s so easy to be honest until we start to see how we fit in, isn’t it? ;-)

Jeff you don’t have to worry. I’ll keep an eye on you! (hehe)

Sarah, if it’s an “ouch” for you I can just imagine the pain for myself! ;-)
