What Are We Still Getting Wrong?

Jordon has a conversation with Stephen Shields [of FaithMaps] I include it here for vanity reasons – my blog makes his Top 5 reading list. And also because its the freshest piece of wisdom I have read for a while.

Jordon Cooper: A couple of decades from now, when we look back at this time of new thoughts and emerging forms of church, what do you think our regrets will be? What do you think we are still getting wrong?

We will regret not having prayed more, not having cultivated our personal and communal relationships with God. We will be sad that we talked and read and learned more than we could possibly ever do. We will regret getting lost in the issues rather than getting lost in Him. We will believe that we spent too much time in the propositional and not enough time in the transpropositional. [more]

    Great post and so true. I’ve been noticing myself that I’ve gotten caught in all the debates on inclusiveness vs exclusiveness, how to deal with the issue of homosexuality, etc. Not that theology isn’t important… but loving God and loving people are a lot more important.
