So we had lunch with a friend of ours today who grew up Lutheran and who is involved in cross-cultural ministry here in the Twin Cities. I find her perspective so fresh as she brings to the table a different way for me to look at things. She is entering her senior year at a Lutheran school here. Without flinching, she spoke of her huge desire to dig deeper into God’s Word with people across
denominational lines and discover Jesus together. Young people aren’t standing idle when it comes to unity; some are demanding it. Refreshing.
In the next couple weeks I will be reading Rob Bell’s book Love Wins as well as Francis Chan’s Erasing Hell. It seems that we can’t have a conversation about such subjects in the body of Christ without running to our camp. It doesn’t seem like we have much of a desire
to sit down with those with whom we disagree and study together. I’m not looking that we all holds and smoke peace pipes, but a cup of coffee with an actual conversation would be nice.
Jesus’ prayer for unity is fresh on my mind today. Looking forward to reading and studying in the days ahead.
