Hey Everyone! MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope you all had a wonderful one! And now, we head into our New Year with much joy and anticipation! I am so very happy to have spent so much time with you guys over the last few days. The 3rd Annual Christmas Party was a blast. I got my favorite gift, the Napoleon Finger Puppet and Seung stole my second favorite item, the Buca di Beppa Gift Certificate! I WILL GET YOU BACK! HAHAHA! The 3rd Annual Christmas Day dinner and a movie was also a great time. If you haven’t seen Night at the Museum, you need to. It is such a great movie and there were so many times I just lost it laughing! Which brings me to my next point. Don’t forget what this year is in the Tapestry. With the changing of the New Year in just a few short days, we will be changing our direction ever so slightly. This year will be the year of Play! We have worked so hard over the last few years, that this year, we are going to have some major fun! Whather it’s game nights, small groups, parties, refreshings, tours, missions, outreach, evangelism, bowling, prayer and praise nights, Starting a morning Service, traveling, hiking, camping, rock climbing, beach tripping, Continuing our Evening Services, changing facilities, walking the Reserve land, meeting new people or whatever, this year, we endeavour to have tons of fun doing it. I challenge you to make this the year of memories! Take more pictures, Laugh More, Give More, Share More, Hang with family More, Relax More, Serve More, Play More, Smile More, Say Thank You More, Get the Door More, Be More Cheerful, Say More Nice Things, Give More Encouraging Words, Stop Bad thoughts with Good ones, Have more Joy, See more troubles as Challenges, Show more character, Give more grace, Remember more good times, Forget more bad memories, Forgive more, Dance more, I think that it’s time to start celebrating. GOD is moving and every day we see HIM, so let us join HIM more this year than ever with joy in our hearts and expectation in our souls. This year, GOD is going to change the minds of a lot of people about what church is all about and HE is going to use you to do it! I am proud of you Tapestry! I love you all much and look forward to this exciting year with each and every one of you! Blessings! pd dustinhedrick Copyright © 2006 the Tapestry Church.

Who Is Jesus?

Posted by on Dec 22, 2006 in my big mouth | 0 comments

Hey Guys, I may have really just embarrassed myself in the biggest way, but all I have to say is that if I did, it’s because Jeanne made me! HAHAHAHA! She sent me a link to this conversation on the Washington Post asking who Jesus is. Here is a link to the post. (CLICK HERE) Just below you will find my post. I have to tell you, I HAD to do it. My heart is racing in my chest. I feel like back in the day when I used to preach in the middle of the open air of UNC Campus. It’s time to write the message as we live it. So, writers, get your pens ready. I have just jumped into the arena. Blessings! pd Washington Post Question: “Who Is Jesus.” Dustin Hedrick’s Response: “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” – Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi Can I just take a moment to apologize? My name is Dustin Hedrick and I pastor the Tapestry Church in Rockville, Maryland. I simply want to take a moment to apologize. I want to apologize for the church that all of you know. I want to apologize for every pastor you have ever come into contact with. I want to say I AM SORRY. I truly believe that the question that needs to be asked today is not, “Who was Jesus,” but why did the church ever stop demonstrating HIS life daily? Your posts affected me today! I want to say thank you. Thank you for all of your critique, for your examination, for your responses and many of you sharing your pain and story. This is the kind of thing I need to hear and read. You guys are VERY honest. Sometimes I am not honest enough with myself. Today I am faced with a brutal reality. And that is of my failure as a believer in this person called Jesus and his continued life as my Lord and GOD, because oftentimes my life is in stark contrast to HIS teachings. You know, I believe that if I had spent the last 32 years of my life, living the message rather than simply speaking the message, things might have been a little different. So, thank you. I am going to live different. I need to get some time alone today and think on these things and really dig into waht you all have said. I needed this. You know what, the New Year is coming. This year, I am going to make my resolution to SHOW Jesus’ teachings and life more than SAY them. It’s time for my best message not to be my words spoken, but my life lived. This year it’s time to give back, share more, love more, laugh a lot, encourage more people, care for the hurting, show kindness to those who need it, actually help the poor, visit, pray for and help the sick, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, beleive for more miracles, be kind, turn the other cheek, listen more, talk less, run from crowds, pray alone, meditate, KNOW the Father daily, share wisdom, yet in humility, learn more, read HIS words daily in order to get to know His thoughts and ideas better, conserve more, consume less, help the homeless, not just give them stuff, but really care about them, smile, touch, care, weep with the broken, pray that the sick are healed, tell others about the Father and His love, fight for the underdog, visit the aged, help the widow, do more humanitarian aid around the world, spend more time in nature, sing, dance, shout, praise, take time to be with the disenfranchised, the outcast, the unwanted, love the unlovelies, hold babies. I have so forgotten what it means when the story tellers of Jesus’ birth say, “he is Immanuel.” It means “God Comes Near.” he walked with us, talked with us, wept with us, felt our pain, lived with us, was tempted with us, stood firm for us, died for us and...
