On Keeping Our Peace
There is so much division, so much animosity among the faithful each proclaim rights, entitlements and grievances. With so much back biting and double-mindedness it is unbelievable we should find any stability.
We have no blessed assurance, certainly not. We have blame for every charge we can make; name-calling, creating new categories and subcategories finding new ways to demean one another.
There are the canonical anomolies, immoral behavior of other groups, the ethical decline of anothers and the calls to arms of novices. We are one Church united in Christ where people who were riddled with death, rise. We debase ourselves with small minded bickering which amounts to merely hosing down the floor with testosterone. Let's all pray for proper communication.
Let's be charitable to one another and keep our peace: shaking the dust from our shoes.
