Beware of the Granola Syndrome in church. Yup, you heard me, thee Granola Syndrome. People walk into church as a fruit, a nut, or a flake.
A fruit: healthy, alive, bearing other fruit.
A nut: enough said. (We know those people so we'll just stay PC on this one.)
A flake: tried God, didn't work, gave up. Yes, a flake.
Here's hope for the nuts: nuts can bear fruit! But they need to be rooted, grounded, and watered with Living Water.
Our responsibility is to spread health within the walls of our church. For the building is not the church; we are the church.
So--what are you? A fruit, a nut, or a flake? Keep it real.
