Are Our Churches Addressing Real Needs?

was just poking around over at craigslist – looking for a new pizza stone to help me perfect my store-bought pizza crusts. and then i bumped into this ad:

Uphappily married man looking for an uphappy married woman … to walk on the walking trails of the canal. Open to the friendship being with benefits after getting to know you for awhile.

so sad and so heartbreaking …and so real. i wonder, do our messages on sunday morning address this level of need, and the many like them? do we know that this is the reality for many people we greet at the door each week? do we have structures in place to help our people connect at deep enough levels with each other to help save some marriages? and when all the lights and fog machines are turned off, do our student ministries have the space to pace with this guy’s kids through the mess?
