Beginning this blog, I want to make it clear that I am working to live into the title and claim no great mastery of it. I daily struggle to live into the space of both/and in our polarized world. Just the other day I drove by someone with a bumper sticker for the presidential candidate that I am hoping will not win in November. I turned around and looked at her to see what someone that crazy looks like.
Wow. It was one of those moments when I was glad no one could read my mind. Nice example of “faith beyond either/or.”
So, I have as far to go as anyone and I hope that maybe I can write myself into the third way, into the way of compassion, into a space of curiosity, wisdom and grace, into the space that I believe God calls us into and that Jesus modeled.
So now the first post is written. Got that over with. Onto find some breathing room.
