“From its inception, however, Christianity was a marginalized not a culturally powerful or influential religion. Our Prophet, Priest, and King was crucified as a common criminal outside the city walls.  He called us to take up our cross and follow him.  Often that cross requires us to be culturally marginal.  It’s not easy nor always pleasant to follow the Savior who had nowhere to lay his head but he has made a promise to his people:

‘And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life’ (Matt 19:29)

Heaven may not be a cocktail party at AAR but it will do.”
