Rob Bell...

went to see Rob Bell last night at the Orpheum theater. It was incrediblle. He is a Christian speaker and was the guy in the video I posted about on Oct 31st. Phenomenal speaker!! He spoke for 1hr and 45 minutes without even so much as a sip of water. The theme of his tour was "The gods Aren't Angry" and he spoke from the dawn of time all the way to when Christ came. He talked about what people believed and how different cultured served different gods and sacrificed different things to appease said gods... it was fascinating!! He summed it up with the fact that God isn't upset with us and we don't have to bargain with him so he won't be angry... he loves and adores us and so all the sacrifices and obstacles and what-not that are required by other religions and "gods" isn't true of God. Really cool stuff.

Interesting...makes me think of the Catholic mass & wedding that we went to this weekend and how the entire wedding party and much of the family proceeded to get plastered at the reception. somehow those two just don't seem like they should go together...

what do you mean when you say 'us', God isn't upset with us. ??
