To Be Connected!

First, let me say this is not an advertisement for one of the greatest hamburger places ever.  Hartell's is located at The Warf in SanDestin, Florida and is a retro hamburger establishment that my family craves from the moment we learn that we get a chance to visit our closest friends condo in this amazing gated community of SanDestin.

The food is better than good...the fries are perfect!  The service is amazing.  With all of these characteristics this post sounds more commercialized than theological...Humm!

When people come to church they come to be connected.  They come to feel the presence of God, but also to be connected to mother, father, sister, brother, or any number of mentors special to who they are or have become.  They come to be connected to...to find connection with...!

I am at the beach planning for the end of this year and the start of the next, and my family left Sunday to start their normal school/ work week and although I have much work to do...I miss them.  So, what did I do?  I went to Hartell's to be connected!  

Don't underestimate the importance of church, especially this time of the year.  We have the advantage of allowing those that God has entrusted in our care to be connected, which is exactly what each of us need!  "Comfort Food"...more like comfort connection.
