    Each week, after the Decalogue is read, someone from our church will swing a sledgehammer at the front wall to represent the frustration of falling short of a law that was intended to give life. This wall holding the cross points us to our need for Jesus to save us and to his desire for us to bring our frustrations and our brokenness to him.

    This was beautifully said, Matt. ‘Falling short of something that was intended to give life’– really captures so much of what I mean when I say, ‘I’m frustrated’.

    And I love the insight that the wall we are hitting is holding the cross.

    Life is right there. Right in front of you.

    How do people volunteer/ask to whack the wall?

    They just need to email me at matt@restorationarlington.org or ask me on Sunday. It’s a first come, first serve basis.
