Church or no Church? That is the question.

How can the Church serve you?

Now I know that there are a bunch of different beliefs out there and so I just want to address this from an open minded standpoint. No matter what your belief on the issue, what would you like to see the church, or even better, the members of the church do in order to serve you? Whether you agree with it or not, Christians are called to serve people, no matter what their beliefs or lack there of. I know a lot of Christians really don't seem to have any heart to serve other people, and come across as stuck up and stubborn. I will totally back you up in saying this is wrong, but I want to know how can the people of the church serve you where you are at in your life? For me, I would say that the people of the church can do a better job of welcoming anyone, being open minded and loving to everyone. I just want to hear your thoughts.

Surprising Science
  • In Italy, a team of scientists is using a highly sophisticated detector to hunt for dark matter.

  • The half-life of a process is how long it takes for half of the radioactive nuclei present in a sample to decay.
