Amen, amen, and amen.

thanks for putting into words the God-enabled longing of many hearts within the church today.

Hallelujah! Wonderful post, let us see more of this kind of blogging!

Be encouraged!

Jesus loves you.

Sounds like you should be preaching! :)


Thank you Dan Eleden for linking here so we could be reassured not all is lost ... and thanks bro. Wilder for reminding us of what biblical preaching is all about.

Your rant on needing Jesus rocks. You sound tired of "5 principles for Your Best Life Now" or "Foundstions of the Christian view of_____." Your tribe is increasing.

Thanks for reminder. We all need it. Home from Iraq, I was on mid-tour leave from my 2nd tour of duty a yr. and a half ago. We went to Savannah. Mid-week, my wife and I were checking out downtown churches. We went into Independent Pres, a beautiful, historic, church. I couldn't resist the urge to climb the spiral stairs into the elevated pulpit. Right before I was able to see the pews, my eyes caught the brass plaque centered on the inside of the pulpit that only the pastor can see it. It reads simply, "Sir, We would see Jesus..." I almost wept. That was a powerful reminder then, and your post has been an equally powerful reminder now. Thank you.

Welcome to CGO

  • Welcome to Common Grounds Online. Readers of Common Grounds have suggested a website to continue the explorations they began in the book. In keeping with the interactions of Professor MacGregor, Brad, Lauren and Jarrod, the theme of this site is ‘learning and living the Christian story.’

    I have invited friends, and a few friends of friends, to communicate aspects of the Christian story that have been significant in their own lives. We’re all trying to find joy and pleasure in this life and the next, but often we forfeit the joy that could be ours by living out foolish, competing scripts. What distinguishes Common Grounds Online Contributors is not our own goodness, achievement or service, but rather the recognition of our need of God’s grace abounding in our lives.
