I have contacted a few churches about the possibility of using their portable sound system for a day ( 8 hours ) and each church that has responded has stated that they have a portable sound system but they can loan or rent the equipment out.
To me, this is very sad that we, as churches, "hoard" possessions or we do not allow them out of our possession because something may happen OR .....
In Alabama, it was different, we (churches) shared a lot of things including equipment. I am sure that God must be up there clapping, going, " thata boy, that is what I had in mind for you "
I am going to step off of my box and go back to doing some church work and will not rant and get myself in trouble BUT it does make me sick and someway, somehow, I think that we as a Christian community should be able to help each other out more.
