A Burden has Been Lifted!

This past week has been stressful as I have had a weight on my shoulders. After a couple of meetings sanity has prevailed and I have learnt a number of things:
  • No one individual has absolute authority on the truth.
  • In a theological fight there are no winners as someone always gets hurt.
  • We can work together if we are able to understand the first two points.
  • Healing the hurt after a theological fight takes time and hard work, the pain will not go away overnight.
  • It would be better not to have to learn the points above the hard way. We should rather learn from the vast amount of history around theological fights.

Well that is all for now. I look forward to the future, the possibilities and making a difference in the community that I live in through the work of my local church.
