I was thinking about a personal ad for a church...something like this perhaps:
MCF ISO NDC w/H.S. Gifts present.
Desire prayerful group.
Active ACTS community desirable.
Let me translate that for you:
Married Christian Female in search of Non-denomination church with Holy Spirit gifts present. Desire prayerful group that gets together, loves one another, takes care of one another and is open to all newcomers.
Then I thought a step further...what about a computerized church matching tool that might be a bit more useful than traditional dating services.
Think about it. You plug in what your beliefs are, doctrinal knowledge, and spiritual gifts. You could be as specific as you want. Perhaps have Y/N questions too.
Do you believe in miracles?
Do you believe in prayer languages?
Do you believe in healing?
Do you know the Lord’s Prayer?
Do you know the Apostle’s Creed?
Do you know WHAT you believe?
Do you question God?
Do you even speak to God?
Do you hear God?
Do you listen to God?
Then the computer would match you to a local church (hopefully) and place you in the best ‘fit’. Just a thought…
How did you find the church you’re in now? Or did it find you? Please chime in…
