A New Place to Worship
|I am just about back in the states. Actually right now I am in the Mexico City airport waiting for my flight to be called and I got to thinking. About my last few days in Oaxaca, Mexico, and the church. Specifically the church in what we know as the developed world. It is amazing the things we take for granted. PowerPoint, good lighting, floors, and even a bunch of great stuff when we visit. Oftentimes I struggle with the affluence of the American church when I know my brothers and sisters in Christ are just fighting to get a roof over their heads. I wonder if God is really happy with us.|
The picture above is of a church I helped build this last week. It is in Mitla, Oaxaca, almost 2000 miles south of the US/Mexico border. And yes, it is literally made out of bark and tree branches with aluminum siding for the roof.
