Why I'm a Presbyterian...
How often do you utter the phrase, "I can't wait until..."? We are focused on future, what's lies ahead that we often forget what's happening around us. What calls you back to the present? For me, it is scripture. The stories of the Bible remind me that God is still actively involved in today's world. So the remedy for our desire to move into the future at the expense of the present is to find a go-to verse that grounds us. Turns out Acts 5 is a harsh, unlikeable text but has some potential for being a go-to verse; check out Rev. Ben's attempts to make it your go-to verse.
