the reason for this sign, this sign that’s in front of our church, is that we strive to be a great place for people to come, feel welcome, enjoy their visit, meet some new friends…you know; all that good stuff.
the reason we say it’s a dangerous place to stay is that whenever we open our hearts up to God, asking Him to make some changes, stir our lives in a way that more greatly honors Him it can become dangerous.
dangerous not to our lives or well-being [although that’s the case in some other parts of the world] but dangerous to our way of living & thinking & treating others. when our status quo is challenged it can become dangerous because when those things change our lives change. and while ultimately that’s a good & wonderful thing; it’s also dangerous in that change there are parts of us, parts that we never would have imagined, will have to change too – and that can be scary & difficult.
so the hope is that you would come & find out what God is doing on the north side of little st.Louis, mi. and maybe, just maybe, the dangerous can become the attractive.
