Great insights Chip! I poured lots of blood, sweat and tears into the church I most recently served, but didn't see significant cultural change until yars 5-7. Those were the best years of my ministry. I found myself thinking of leaving almost every other month in my first four years. But when I went to the church I promised God I would stay no less than 5 years. I'm so glad I made that promise or I may have missed the fruit!

 You're right. I can say all kinds of things about God and get in no trouble, but if I question the politics of a party I ruffle feathers. Sad but true.

 Exactly! What if the Church was more passionate about Kingdom wins as we are about party wins. In this heated political climate the Gospel can really shine.

 That's funny...I did a series called the politics of Jesus a few years back in which the assistant pastor and I did some "hate ads." The congregation loved it, I think more than what I had to say about allegiance to Christ trumping our political allegiance.
