I bought a book last week called ‘Posers, Fakers and Wannabes” by Brennan Manning (not the turkey guy or the Mancunian comedian) but a Christian author who is brutally honest about how he has played at being a Christian and said the right things in Christian company. I am only one chapter into it and I completely identify with so much of what has been said. In August we will run our annual mission week and the theme is ‘Inside Out’. I hope that all of those who get involved will be changed by God from the Inside Out and that He will help us to pay attention to the life we live behind the scenes. I really want this to be a significant time for me and the young people I lead. Jesus called the Pharisees white washed tombs because they looked beautiful on the outside but on the inside they were full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean. He tells His followers that the pure in heart will see God and maybe I don’t see God as much as I should because my heart isn’t as pure as it should be. I don’t want to be a poser, faker or wannabe! I want to be real and you know what? I think the people around us want us to be real too..
