Trevor & I got back today from spending a night onboard the USS Hornet with his Cub Scout pack. We missed church to do this. We didn’t talk about Jesus once. But when we crawled into our uncomfortable berths having stayed up way past his bedtime, I leaned out from my berth and looked down on a tired but happy boy who said, “Good night, Dad.” How cool is that?

Shared experience is the basis of relationship. Relationship is the medium of the gospel. So God may call you to skip church once in a while for the sake of the gospel.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
