Black and white...

Today I had a conversation with someone over my recent involvement in the Emergent movement. It ended with us both agreeing to disagree, but then I was told I was still in the wrong. It wasn't: "Hey, we both see things differently. And that's okay. We're working towards the same purpose." I had hoped for that. That's kinda where I was going with the whole "remembering Titus" thing... we're all different people who think different things and see things different ways. But I don't see a thing wrong with that.

It's kinda the beauty of God's masterpiece... isn't it? We're a mosaic. A kaleidoscope of humanity. And we should be working as one. Together. United. Not divided over who's right and who's wrong... not forcing the issue of who's in and who's out. We should be one. Peter says that "love covers a multitude of sins." I feel so strongly about that... that in love, we shouldn't be so focused on the minor issues. We shouldn't be so focused on disagreements. If we both don't see eye to eye on something, who cares?

I just don't think that in a world of gray, to make things black and white, someone always has to be wrong.
