Three things you probably never thought you'd see in the same sentence would be "Dying Motors, Red Flags and Ever Dirtying Kitchen Sinks". And ten years ago you'd probably never have thought of Andy Berry, DingDash and Devotional Treasures in the same sentence either. But, God has a wonderful sense of purpose, and humour. And these three things led to this post. My name is Andy Berry and, with my family we run www.berrybunch.family. And part of what my wife and I have frequently done is bring things that don't necessarily fit together, to help tell a story. It's our bread and butter - crowbarring unlikely situations and objects - into messages - to inspire and challenge us all to become more like Jesus Christ.
So we had to replace a door seal/gasket from our washing machine which was starting to fail. While we caught it before it had a chance to cause any damage to anything, it got me wondering about how connected we are to God - where our seals are perished or warped, and allowing stuff to get in between us and God that shouldn't.
