a tough question.

So a couple weeks ago at small group, we talked about how to treat each other, even when they annoy us, or hurt us, or screw us over. And I confess I haven’t been doing a good job of it lately. Not that I’ve been insulting people to their face or viciously spreading rumors behind anyone’s backs. We all can stand to improve in this area, right?

The tough question I have is what about when you’re being wronged and treated horribly and there is financial stake in it? What do you do? What if standing up for yourself and what is right is deemed selfish and you’re the enemy?

Should I let myself be walked all over for the sake of Christ? It seems like the answer should be yes without a doubt when it’s phrased that way. And I know it’s always easier said than done, but in this occasion, I know that I’m being taken advantage of. Do I not stand up for myself, lose a lot of money, and be unselfish? Or do I stand my ground, have people get very angry at me, and be accused of being un-Christian?

I don’t know what to do.

open mic.

My great friend Evan and I have enjoyed jamming with each other for a long time now, and it was only a couple weeks ago we finally took it outside our rooms.

Common Grounds coffee house has open mic nights on Mondays. Our first evening included three songs, one being:

We then got ourselves a booking! Common Grounds has scheduled us for September 4th from 9-10pm. Take a gander at a few of the clips below and tell me you don’t want to come see us. 🙂 ENJOY!
