In my ideal world:

1) People would not judge me or categorise me by what I did or my illness but would take the time to talk to me and discover what makes me tick (and would not assume that they knew this because they happened to read my blog).

2) Church small groups would not be made and grouped purely on age. This is a stupid model and results in a whole bunch of people of vastly different spiritual levels being put into one room and being expected to learn material that may or may not be relevant to them. You wouldn’t do it at a school so why subject people to it in a church setting. No wonder people leave.

3) Schools would not have bells that sounded like fire sirens. I mean a bell is a bell.

4) People would get reimbursed for the actual hours they work.

5) People would actually think about the lyrics they were singing in a worship song rather than singing it because it had ‘good music’ secondly people would learn to discern a sermon rather than just ‘listen to it’.

6) Matthew Sinclair would be permanently in the Black Caps.

7) Add your own number 7 as a contribution below (you have all been very quiet lately)
