The whole idea for this week's message "All the Lonely People" is to point out that community centered on Jesus beats any other community by a mile. Jesus' family wasn't immune from weirdness and dysfunction. That cousin of his - yeah the one who wore the weird clothes and ate .. organically - he'd liven up any get together. And his brothers, the ones who were going to Baker Act him... took them a long time to get on board with the "I'm the Messiah" idea. So stay tuned Sunday and we'll try to help with some Biblical insight.
But as far as family dysfunction goes, the holidays are the absolute best crucible for a mess. Fortunately, today I found the cure.
