July 20 - Sept. 28, 2014

The Bible and religion seem to give Christians -- and everybody else in our culture -- lots of rules to follow, and no hope that we can ever follow those rules; the only way to survive this life or the next is to pray the right prayer or join the right group or just hope for the best in the bad/good columns. But what if that's not what following Jesus is about -- and what if following Jesus is actually a way to get OUT of the message of perfectionism, not just from religion but from American culture overall? Let's try some things together and see.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to let go of perfectionism. Our primary purpose is to stay free and hep other perfectionists to achieve the freedom of imperfectionism.

Pause for a moment of silence
