Television preachers and pulpit showmen are like crack.

They offer a feel-good escape from reality to those who feel isolated …

Often causing a downward spiral of more isolation with ever more dependence on their feel-good “fix”.

It rarely ends well, except for the huckster preacher.

Real life, real faith and real church are played out between real people in real community – where we have real opportunity to work through real issues and find real spiritual health and maturity …

Together, one with another.

It’s not always easy …

But it’s always our choice.

Don’t settle for counterfeits.
