I’m really tired.
I’m tired of Christian Culture
I’m tired of The Church
I’m tired of Evangelicalism
I’m tired of being part of a group that lately seems to only come out against things and not for things
I’m tired of a movement that would punish children because of a ministry’s hiring choices.
I’m tired of a ministry not having the guts to back up their choices
I’m tired of there being no space for “I don’t know”
I’m tired of “culture wars”
I’m tired of the internet
I’m tired of Christians
So incredibly tired.
Please Father, lift me up in your arms. I feel like I can’t walk anymore. The weight of what the world expects of me is too much.
Remind me that you are outside of Christian Culture
Remind me that you live outside nationalism
Remind me that you are outside of denominations
Remind me that you live in the tension of grace and truth
Remind me that you are everlasting love
Remind me of the people in my life who reject all the notions that make me tired
Remind me of those things while I cry a little in your presence tonight.
Because I’m just so tired
