I did some reflecting last night and this morning about Christian community and the importance of it and why I felt so strongly to speak up about when I thought it was being maligned and mis-portrayed.
And then I got a gift as a perfect example.
I did about 90 minutes yesterday morning with a friend. We had a rousing, helpful, insightful, passionate, and friendly discussion about life and theology. We pondered, wondered, confronted and argued. What was supposed to be about 45 minutes turned into 90 without a blink.
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
And that's why we need people like that in our lives. It's why we need to consistently find ourselves in circles, gathered around the Bible for conversation that matters.
But that's just me thinking thoughts...
