We Don’t Go That Way…

If you spend much time at all talking with people about religion a common theme heard these days is I believe in God, but I don’t believe in organized religion.  I recently had an encounter with a local pastor that helped me understand why. The Lord told me a long time ago I was to spread his word, but for decades I ignored the call.  And then my ministry started at a nursing home.  LOL, its a stretch to call it a ministry, but each week I lead a group of seniors in search of the Lord.  And though I do my best to help them, some want more.  They have a strong desire to go to a “real church” but without transportation they were not able to worship in a pew.

I recently saw a shiny church bus parked outside a local church, and as fate would have it I ran into the pastor.  It was a nice church, you could tell from the buildings and grounds the congregation were blessed and shared their good fortune with the church.  I explained the hunger of the group to attend church and then asked if their van might pick them up.  His answer caught me a little off guard, he simply said, “Our bus doesn’t go that way.”

Interesting.  I don’t know whom I feel sorrier for, those poor home bound seniors that can’t find a way to church, or a church that can’t find a way to it’s mission.

What have you done to help someone find their way to God?  Or do you not go that way?
