No Yoke...

Had a great day visiting one of our seniors today, with three crazy youth girls, they were a hoot! It has been awesome seeing these three come such a long way from Jr. High...where flags and laughing the only thing that mattered...maybe that's a bit inside...and maybe laughing is still a huge part, but we had a great time visiting hanging out and just enjoying their spares...

I have been slowly plugging away on sermon prep now that I had finished speaking on Wednesday at youth, and have been battling at how to share and teach on 2 Cor. 6:14-7:1, because this text has been abused and misused so much previously to mean a lot of things that I don't believe Paul is saying here...what's neat about this text is Paul's frustration here, there is something very real going on, with the guy who has been in close touch with Corinthians loving them, teaching them, deciding amongst their quarrels with them, and yet they are pulled back in to their old practices in to their old ways yoking them selves both in physical practice of going to temples of false god's and spiritually disengaging with the Holy spirit and as Paul argues the 'right' way of living, his heated tone is coming through in the words that he is choosing here...and Paul's realness comes through in this...I like that...
