“I grabbed drinks with a friend named Chelsea yesterday. She was talking about an experience she had where her counselor was talking about finding solace in a higher power. Chelsea told me that her counselor asked her to share her thoughts on a deity. Chelsea unfolded her background in religion which was entirely fear based. I told her I felt her story was more normal than she thought. I threw out Brennan Manning’s question “Do you believe God likes you?” and pulled a few verses out about this reckless God who does much to show us….I contrasted that with fear based christianity. She responded by saying we need to have more conversations of this God who likes me. At the end she was texting friends inviting them to this discussion. – Disciple-Maker, Dallas-Fort Worth
