Can't we all just get along?

At the recent Elephant Room conference, I was really impressed with the speakers and how they discussed their disagreements.  I wish the Body of Christ as a whole were mature enough to relate as well as these folks did.

When we disagree in the church, our first tendency is to tear down or degrade the other person or ministry.

There are tons of blogs that make their claim to fame on just that.

But it takes maturity, and quite frankly, much more time and effort to reasonably discuss your disagreements with another brother.

Take a look at these two great exchanges… the first between Matt Chandler and Steven Furtick; the second between Perry Noble and Mark Driscoll.

And, I must say, James MacDonald does a masterful job at setting the tone.

Don’t you wish this was more representative of the body of Christ as a whole?

Please take a moment to leave a comment…

Thanks,

Todd
