Church finds novel ways of attracting flock
The Church of England is seeking new ways to shore up its dwindling flock - by offering divine assistance to those seeking peace and happiness in a new home. Read about it here and here. When I first saw the headline I thought this could be funny. But actually I think this is a great idea. I believe that evil can be in certain homes based on what the inhabbitants were involved in. When I was in college my roomate Rob, who is a pastor in Decatur, AL and I both had the same experience of a dream that we were in bondage-on the same night in different rooms. We believe that God was working on both us because we both knew we were to be pastors but he was pursuing Pharmacy and I was going to be a football coach. It was creepy. Then, when Cassandra and I moved to Atlanta, our real estate agent (who reads this blog and will vouch for this- Hey Claudia!) took us to a house that she warned was a house of two men who had alternative lifestyles. As we were looking around at the house, I started sweating and feeling oppressed. I couldn't breath and started having visions of evil going on in that house. Claudia and Cassandra looked at me and asked what was wrong and I said we had to get out. This has nothing to do with me being homophobic. I don't know what evil there was-but something evil was occuring in that house. So, I believe what the Church of England is doing is good. I would be willing to bless anyone's house that asks because I believe prayer works. Way to go Church of England!
