Wounded Unity – Thoughts from the Edge

Unity or uniformity. My brother Paul listed his status today as, “Suffering posttaxum depression.” We all are united in the experience of taxation. But, we are not taxes uniformly. When we think of unity in terms of following Jesus conflict often arises over uniformity. Yet, the very experience of the early followers of Jesus exposed a lack of uniformity in experience and expression. Yet, they were unified around the resurrected One. We too would do well to find unity around the resurrected One.

    thanks todd… that is powerful… unity may bring us together over something but it may not manufacture the same reaction…. sometimes that needs to be dealt with, but the legitimacy of unity is not centered in the followers but in the centerpiece of the unity

    Would you be open to doing an interview about spiritual disciplines, time management and personal influences for my blog?

    I think it would be great to get your perspective.

    If so, send me an email and I will forward you the questions to be answered at your leisure.
