I'm part of a writer's group on Slack and someone had a great idea to share "writing challenges." Each challenge has a theme with a specific word count and the genre of writing can be whatever you want. This challenge was the theme "when silence speaks" and the word count was 300. Here was my entry.
It’s a sad truth that many churches are full of people who have professed saving faith in Christ, attended and served faithfully for twenty to thirty-plus years, taught Sunday school, and read their Bibles, but have not been transformed at all. They’ve gained experience in doing Christian things but haven’t actually grown as a Christian. They've mistaken experience for growth.
