Isnt it time for us to reconsider ourselves as well as to redfine ourselves?
What does it really mean to be an OCian?
I dont know. I really have no idea considering i am quite a new member as compared to those jokers who has been in OC since it started and stuff. I mean. Popping up on one sat wasnt exactly the way i thought i would be entering CCMC
But what i do know. OC was a great place to be in. It was fun. It was happening.
But mark the use of the past tense.
I think we should continue to evaluate and to also evolve. I think it is time we stopped thinking that other churches are better or other churches are more fun. Instead, think, how would we be able to make OUR church more fun? A church is not formed by individuals. Pong and the oldies gang can poke, they can needle. But ultimately, you would not be able to force a cow to drink the water even if you were to stick his head in the fountain.
I think its nice to see our church being compared with other churches. Sure. I know we would fare worse if we were to compare which was more "happening" and "fun". But ultimately, what would make things fun and happening? It would be our love for God and ourselves. Your physcal appearace may be in the OC. But if your thoughts are going like.. "Weasly is more fun", then i would think that you would be better off worshipping there dont you think?
Be an OCian. Stand up. Be proactive. Make it somewere you look forward to worshipping God in every week instead of somewhere you can just exchange comments on how dead it is. (The comments seem to be getting more and more intellectual BTW.)
Define ourselves. Make it a church which will attract the thousands.
This is my call to arms.

Dear God, as I begin this day
Let me turn my thoughts to you
and ask Your help in guiding me
In everything I say and do.
Give me the patience that I need
To keep my piece of mind,
And with life's cares, I hope, Dear God,
Some happiness to find.
Let me live but for today,
Not worrying what's ahead,
For I have trust that You will see
I get my "Daily Bread".
Give me the courage to face life's trials
And not from troubles run,
Let me keep this thought in mind,
"Thy will, not mine, be done."
And if some wish I do not get
Though I have prayed to Thee,
Help me to believe and understand
You know what's best for me.
I've failed You many times, I know,
But when tonight I rest,
I hope that I can kneel and say
"Dear God, I've tried my best."
