E. Stanley Jones: what if we just got honest?

E. Stanley Jones :

"At our 'Open Heart' meetings, we give four or five hours to this catharsis (Christians sharing honestly about three questions: 'Why have you come?' 'What do you want?" "What do you really need?') The reaction of one person, who listened to it for the first time, was: 'Good gracious, have we all the messed up people in the country here?' My reply was: 'No, you have a cross section of the church life honestly revealed.'

In the ordinary church, it is suppressed by respectability, by a desire to appear better than we really are."

The 77s may (again)have said it best..."Pray Naked."
