At TCC we like to offer opportunities for our people to serve. Serve in areas where they can use their gifts and natural abilities. We had the priviledge of one of our members who is currently studying to share some insights from what they have been learning. And isn't that what Church should also be about? A safe place to share your joys, struggles and what you've been learning and challenged with?
One of our members shared "I started to read, I mean really read my Bible about 12 years ago and I was living in a very remote part of Australia. I was learning pure gospel,commentary by my side, Christian TV...and no religion. By religion, I mean ritual and ceremony, carried out without God's involvement at all. It wa not until the end of last year; and particularly the beginning of this year that I ran smack bang into religion. A battle I never thought I would have to fight..."
You may or may not agree with this statement, but this person went on to share about this statement and the deep sadness they experienced by what they see in our local churches.
