A Little Confused Post #1

I have just finished reading the the book Speaking my Mind by Tony Campolo and I must say that something has changed since I went to Sunday School. I was of the opinion that I had things pretty cut and dried and the people who taught me also were quite sure that they had all the answers and that they were the right answers.

I am not so sure any more if all the answers they gave were always the right ones or the best ones. But they were the ones they were taught by their parents and pastors based on the knowledge and understanding that they had at the time.

On Sunday night I attended my local church, First City Baptist and we had a great time I can not remember to much of the message but what I do remember is the format and the fellowship that we had together. I had to ask myself the question why were we not able to do what we did on Sunday night 20 years ago. Has God changed his mind or have we changed? Something has changed because what I experienced was completely different and exciting and is what I want to be a part of.

I will explain a bit of what happened on Sunday night in further post and also begin to ask questions on some tough issues that I battle with. As I attempt to document some of my journey of faith and theology in a changing world.
