In a manner - the following quote from a friend provided on a car talk list is interestingly applicable to any of our lives and places. I have known this issue for a long time, but forget from time to time. It really is easier to criticise or tear down. It really is hard and innovative and creative to generate views/ideas in a positive manner. I guess that is why the Truth is sooo good - it is not new thought necessarily among men, but all the thought of man along those lines indeed was originated in the Truth - ideas concerning love, forgiveness, creation, assmbly, etc. But far too much of any dialog anywhere is a matter of tearing down rather than building up - and while I cannot comb my memory about the Truth that points to that, I think that is spoken of in the Bible.

House Church Talk is sponsored by the House Church Network.
House Church Talk has been renamed. These discussions, via the web, now occur at the Radically Christian Cafe.
