How often do we debate and furiously assert we are ‘right’, when all along both parties are arguing for the same thing but starting from different perspectives?
Today – four speakers all devout and batting around the concept of ‘Fresh Expressions”. What was clear to me was a sense in which all four were dancing around the same centre but starting from different perspectives.
All were mission minded, clear about the need for worship and development of faith. The specific value of each form was dependent on perspective – but none were willing or able to ‘diss’ entirely the other position or tradition.
Just like music there are examples of exceptionally good forms of church, I reflect I enjoy everything from classical, pop, punk, folk, country, rock and even religious.
