Empty can mean many things, but it is also something extraordinary.
The door creaked as I opened it and headed into the room. Before I could see anything, I could hear screams, laughter, and shouting. A ball went whizzing past my head. Music was pumping through the sound system. Over 30 middle school and high school students were enjoying life and relationships. It was my typical Wednesday evening for over 6 years.
While the culture around us certainly cast judgment and condemnation every which way, the challenge to my heart during this time is for the church. Those who are followers of Jesus Christ.
Merry Christmas! Hope has a name...
