FLASHBACK: So Jesus really does matter? Part 3

I'm not sure when this series of posts were originally written, but I suspect around 2006. It addresses the tension between pursuing doctrinal truth within a church and uniting around Jesus - a tension I am not sure I have been able to maintain to my satisfaction. Anyway, having posted Part 1 and Part 2, here is So Jesus really does matter? Part 3.

Maybe I am going to make people uncomfortable with all this, but stick with me. I am suggesting that just because your church no longer believes the Bible is the Word of God, or because it has accepted homosexuality is okay, that is no reason to leave.

Written by Daddy for Kylie and Jack.

There was once a King who loved piano music. It didn’t matter what the songs were as long as they were played on the piano.

The King had seven daughters, called, Beauty, Cutey, Snooty, Looty, Fruity, Tooty and Duty, and he taught them all how to play the piano. They were all excellent pianists, though some were even better than the others.

One day the King organized a piano competition.

LoveHeart

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:1-3 NIV)

My brother Phil used to have an old Hillman Hunter when he was about 17 years old.

Scene from "The Blue Umbrella", directed by Saschka Unseld.

The Blue Umbrella is the theatrical short of the Disc 1 Special Features for Monsters University. It is a clever boy meets girl piece featuring inanimate objects in the busy streets of a human city.

What we've been doing is "plane".

Library books. So useful. Kylie gets them out and goes for gold...if it's something that interests her.

So this is the book that provided the fuel for the making of planes to take off. Look at what happened...
