One of my favorite sites is Stuff Christians Like, written by Jon Acuff. This site embraces the lighter side of faith, the side that we all feel, we all know but rarely talk about because we abide by unwritten rules that say something about how we can't be ridiculous and still be Christian, that we must take our faith seriously for goodness sake. Conservative Christians might call his site blasphemous! But for the rest of us who aren't perfect (and know it), it is remarkably relevant.
True Christianity means to love God and that means sometimes doing completely ridiculous things. Acuff embraces the belief that God wants us to laugh and be silly and happy. I agree. I think God wants us to be simple and find humor and comic relief in just about everything. It keeps us from taking ourselves so seriously. So for real, I love his blog. It doesn't hurt that Jon is off the charts hysterical.
I am so proud and humbled that he chose one of my blog posts to be featured on his website as a guest post this coming Friday (March 30th). Essentially, he's letting me come over to his place and pop a squat for a whole day. I'm going to raid his refrigerator, hog the remote control and watch Netflix from his comfy couch. I might dig through his medicine cabinets too. It'll be totally awesome.
