Denominations

Like em? Love em? Leave em?

Well, if you're the latter you're not alone. Irregardless, me and my Christ-following homeboys and homegirls are a part of one. I prefer to call it a worldwide network of churches but it's all semantics. Actually, I take that back, as I recently was reminded in a book I'm reading called Axiom, "language matters" and here's a link to that chapter summarized.

Irre-irregardless, I was reading about the XXX Church dudes and the fact that they're starting a church in Las Vegas called Strip Church (what a sweet name for a church on the strip). They had a recent news and highlights section and what did I find there under recent supporters but the network of churches I call home. Way to go Christian and Missionary Alliance, props to you/us/them, whatever, you get the idea.

    if I understand correctly Craig Gross is an Alliance pastor!

    oh...

    "Usage Note: Irregardless is a word that many mistakenly believe to be correct usage in formal style, when in fact it is used chiefly in nonstandard speech or casual writing. Coined in the United States in the early 20th century, it has met with a blizzard of condemnation for being an improper yoking of irrespective and regardless and for the logical absurdity of combining the negative ir- prefix and -less suffix in a single term. Although one might reasonably argue that it is no different from words with redundant affixes like debone and unravel, it has been considered a blunder for decades and will probably continue to be so."

    just thot u should know.

    That's sweet! Go us! Personally when people get too caught up in their demonination and want to get nit-picky about their differences, it just feels like we're all missing the point. On the whole thoug, I think they're fine. I love being a part of this 'network of churches' around the country and globe and I won't trade or switch or wish for a different one any day. We've got some great roots and awesome history in the CMA. Irregardless of how off topic Erik was in his comment, I'm with you!

    very cool. Glad to see us step up and do something for the kingdom and not just for what might look "right."
    Thanks for the post Josh!
