as much as i can i try to go mars hill (www.mhbcmi.org) in grandville michigan. it's the only church i've ever been to that actively pursues a Jesus community in all the right ways.
a couple weeks ago however, i went to the church i grew up in and that my parents go to. this old guy who i've known for a while asked what i was going to school for. i replied audio tech, video and film tech, and new media. he became very disturbed and told me that i needed to pray about that and seriously ask God if thats what i suppose to do - that those pursuits were the fruitcakes of the industry. I walked away. He didn't even let me tell him what i wanted to use it for. (which i shouldn't have to anyway), but it's funny because i plan on using my skills in those areas to create digital media for western european churches who are attempting to reach the young postmodern generation. he had no clue.
i understand bro - try to make it to mars hill someday - you'll never want to leave.
sidenote: i actually think daily bible reading is quintessential to being a devoted follower. not neccessarily not devoted at all however. obviously.
