I wanted to point you all to a link I have over in my Fun Stuff, The Sheep Comics.
Don’t click over unless you have a few hours to spend reading comics about sheep. I’d also encourage, after reading each comic strip, that you read below to the comments explaining or discussing the comic above.
The comics are very funny, but also very serious.
One of the main themes running throughout the comics is that there is a difference between pleasing God and pleasing a church system. It’s one thing to “go to church” and quite another to take ownership of your faith and your eternal destiny.
Anyway, they give me a lot to think about, as well as an alternative point of view concerning “church” and faith.
