I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

Why is it?

Why is it that...
  • Sororities & fraternities can create life long bonds in a few years but many churches remain fragmented, disconnected and detatched?
  • Cults (often without "paid staff") can mobilize so many people to action while churches struggle with commitment and doing the most basic stuff?
  • Numerous organziations are flexible enough to engage a changing culture yet churches remain stagnantly committed to the same old thing?
  • Bars & clubs are full on Saturday night and church buildings have plenty of room on Sunday mornings?
  • Social/Politcal movements seem to garner intense participation yet so many church folks are satisfied with the staus quo?
That's what I'm talkin bout.

--People can sit hear the word of God for 20 years and be the same old person the whole time. Good thing God never called us to have productive ministries...only faithful one!!!
