It really isn’t a question about the people’s hearts. The people of the Northwest are so nice. They are warm-hearted and love where they are. It is more of a question of importance. What is more important?
So, when we drive to church on Sunday and see fishermen along the river, my heart hurts for them.
They are missing it.
They are missing the blessing of fellowship, praise and worship to the God who really matters.
They are missing hope, love and forgiveness.
“Don’t think,” I whisper to them. “Just come. Drop your nets. Leave your lives, and come worship the One who carved out the river you so desperately love. Come and worship our King.”
