“HOW ARE WE DOING?” – Cont’d
Jesus, we know you are full of love and mercy and we’re hoping for some good scores here.
We’re not sure about folks in other countries, but we American Christians are suffering. Gas prices are going up and you know what that means for our SUV’s and RV’s. And we fear what an economic downturn would do to our 401K’s, CD’s and other investments for retirement. Life is getting hard here. Thanks for cutting us some slack.
Again, on a scale of 1 to 10, how do you rate us as compared to what you expect of “The Body of Christ”? How are we doing – -:
