Where do you confess?

Andrew Greeley once said that anything the church drops society will pick up. That certainly seems to be the case with the idea of confessing.

While it is hardly ever talked about in church circles anymore, a proliferation of impersonal opportunities have sprung up for a new kind of confessional. Just check these out to name a few:





Post Secret now actually has events that resemble a church service where you can voyeuristically watch the anonymous confessions of other people on a screen. Yikes!

James 5:16-20
Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. Elijah, for instance, human just like us, prayed hard that it wouldn't rain, and it didn't—not a drop for three and a half years. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The showers came and everything started growing again.

My dear friends, if you know people who have wandered off from God's truth, don't write them off. Go after them. Get them back and you will have rescued precious lives from destruction and prevented an epidemic of wandering away from God.

How do you see this verse coming alive in your own life?

I think you are misrepresenting the PostSecret Events.

Unless of course it is a confession!
