Just sitting here browsing, since my patients have chosen not to show up this morning – so far. David Brazzeal at www.curieux.ca posted a link to this article, Avoiding the Argument Party, on the Resonate group conversation. Brian McLaren gets knocked around for his expressions of belief but I sure think he writes with a lot of insight. We spend a lot of time defending ourselves and specific current issues that we have strong opinions on. We like to argue, especially if we can make our point clear.
But, I wonder if Jesus would have argued over the popular controversies or if he would have left them to the religious leaders who liked to argue?
