mars hill church

http://theresurgence.com/the_call_boot_camp

This article made me very uncomfortable. Is another good church going down the mainstream drain and becoming as irrelevant and phony as other churches? It makes me very uncomfortable when churches care so much about growth because 99% of the time they then forget about the people.

In reality most churches probably already forgot about the people and real friendships. Almost feels like the whole idea of caring about someone's spiritual well-being is mostly phony and distracts from the real issues and the real person, our "neighbor."

recession

these are simply a few semi-random thoughts i had while stumbling "recession" related websites/articles today:
- is the recession fabricated?
- if the recession is fabricated for what reason?
- it almost feels like the only way to really change things is if we stop being stupid senseless consumers and take responsibilities for all our actions
- could it be that this is a good opportunity to develop a business which can emerge out of this recession like the phoenix from the ashes?
