This evening is going to be the kick off night for Campus Alpha!
For those who may not be familiar with the organization, let me tell you it is phenomenal!
It basically encourages and invites people of all faiths, athiests, agnostics, skeptics or those who are just curious what the whole "God" thing is about and it opens up a roundtable discussion about the basics of the Christian faith.
This is a place that is safe and welcomes the questioning, the hurting and the confused.
I really believe that this is just the sort of thing that would make God smile.
Maybe some have come from churches or homes in which they didn't feel they could ever ask hard questions. The type of environments that made them feel ashamed for even thinking of these things...
I completely disagree with this approach. Christians shouldn't be afraid of the tough questions just as they shouldn't be afraid of going and learning about other groups of people.
We are all created in the image of God, we all deserve respect and to be known and cared for.
This was the whole mission of Jesus, and this should be the central and core mission of His followers.
I'm so psyched for tonight!
