Guilty...


I have to say...we've bought into this whole idea of tee shirt theology a few times. Our kids have many and even the one pictured in my last blog. And although one must be careful, its great to see the kids wearing them boldly. In fact at the dollar store one day, my daughter was wearing the one in the picture and the cashier leaned over the counter to say "He died for my space too!" And with a wink and a smile, she finished the transaction. My daughter left there feeling connected to her Christian world outside of church and home. It was a lovely experience. I'm sure there will come a day when there will be a tough reaction to her faith and she'll have to use her apologetics skills but until then, I'm okay with the shirts. What I'm not okay with is complacency. Its about relationship, religion is the way we choose to express the relationship. Anyone want to weigh in on that?

I love t-shirt theology. I love the opportunities it gives people to discuss things that might not come up otherwise. It most likely will keep away the people you don't want to discuss anything with too!
