Living Stones

As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame."

I Peter 4-6 NIV

The rock churches of lalibela are considered to be the 8th wonder of the world...pictured is St George... it's carved from solid rock about 11 meters deep.... and 800 years old! We spent a couple of days visiting several of the churches and I was reminded that WE ARE THE CHURCH! We don't "go" to church.... we are called to BE THE CHURCH!

That's what is so amazing about getting away from the daily grind to experience all God has.

The little boy pictured with me was with his family an an orthodox service in Lalibela... he touched my heart... may he know the living Christ.

So, why are you just waiting for another "church" service looking at the back of someone's head? Get OUT and BE the church.... trust God for the greatest adventure of all.
