Theology of WBKWWD
This last week a phrase comes back to me repeatedly. It is a phrase from Craig Henningflied – “We barely know what we are doing” It is a – WBKWWAD
When I think of going to Africa last fall* with a three week notice, when I think of taking in a little 2 and half year old girl last year with a two day notice, when I think of going before the judge on Saturday to make it an official adoption, We barely knew/know what we are doing.
When I think of a new believer who has been in a HC for a few months and now with her boy friend have started another HC. And today I hear that she was reading her Bible at a Starbucks last week only to have another person ask her what she is doing and then join her along with a third person and because she heard about another person starting a Starbucks HC, decided this is a church too (they meet five days a week). When I think of some of the best things, we barely know what we are doing precedes them as well as continues thru the process.
When I think of a party in which all the neighborhood was invited (we forgot that some haven’t talked to each other for years due to some kind of falling out) and two estranged neighbors connect, even enjoy each other, I am glad I forgot. I think hey we should start a movie night or a book club or come up with something for every one or may be we could…. but then I hear myself trying to keep things going and make things happen …may be I should just follow/watch to see where God is leading.
WBKWWAD, maybe it is best it stays that way. Just some thoughts,
* resulted in a 100′s of house churches started, 87 by one brother alone since last November.
