Are you a rule follower? Do you feel safe within the boundaries of the rules or do you feel constricted? Do you question rules or automatically accept them?
We certainly need rules. Think of how hard it would be to drive around the city or even the neighborhood if no one had to follow any driving rules. We create rules to bring order and clarity.
What about religious rules? Who gets to set those?
The problem is, no matter how hard I try I can’t keep all the rules; and even if I could, rules will not heal my hurts, forgive my past, or secure my future.
This weekend the talk is about the difference between religious rules and a relationship with God.
