My wife and I are buying a home.
The place is in Lakeland, FL. The calm neighborhood has no idea what's about to happen. Little Girls change everything but themselves. My Wife's blog chronicles some of the struggles we face together in finding a new home. It's a challenge, and the house has been a Godsend.
Downtown Orlando is undergoing some changes too. Seems like every week I notice a new building here, and an old building gone. Things are being torn down, new things are going up. Jimmy the Gravy has something to say about that. Cities can sometimes go through the same growing pains I think. Perhaps that is why God mentions cities by name sometimes, talking about their sins and whatnot. The city has the personallity of the people in it. What does that mean where you live? In Orlando, everything has a great exterior, but the insides are often bad, I call that the "disney effect". Perhaps your city has something similar. Time and time again, I think that Christians are unwilling to create the city God wants them to because of their unwillingness to love on another.
Loving means acting.
