And there we were at the Church…

Today’s message is all about love. When I was hungry you gave me to eat. When I was thirsty you gave me to drink. I just recently read a message from his Holiness Pop Francis. And I couldn’t help but have mixed feelings. However upon ripping myself of my religious emotions, I saw great meaning in his words. He said ” The notion of God is outdated” Yea!sounded weird right?

Keep on reading… and you get uneasy…

Although I am yet to ascertain the veracity of the statement… but what remains apt is the last sentence where he said ” so many  people have done lots of evil in the name of the church”.

And there we were in church on Sunday.  Most of us are shells, because our minds wander away …. to a different place. However, the satisfaction that we were in church on Sunday is what keeps us going. We step out with a satisfied smile but our souls are hungry , thirsty looking for the word of God.

Then there is that group of people who sees going to church as obligatory and not necessarily the essence of fellow shipping with others. There are the other group of people who are in church to keep up appearances that they are Christians.

Christianity is in the heart and in the soul, it is  in our acts of love and kindness and not in church going. For there we were on Sunday in the church yet we are not in sync with God’s words.

Let us mediate on it.

 

Cheers!
