    I voted, but let it be recorded that I protest only having a binary choice.

      So noted.

    So moved! The motion carries and tony needs to out another option! :)

  • Dan Hauge

    I concur, I voted, but I hope you don’t conclude too much from a ridiculously reductive choice like this one!

    Oh, and best of luck with the book :)

    “There are only two choices.”

    I was having such a hard morning but I took such delight in this. I teach my students all the time. Never settle for a false dichotomy. “Yes” is a perfectly acceptable response to an either-or question and so is “neither”.

    I’m still chuckling a bit. Thanks. I love your blog.

    Ps. Both.

    I think it is both also.

    In my journey, I have found that my day is much easier to manage if I have that few moments to slow down and let God speak to me….

    Tony, thank you for demonstrating that asking questions is a good thing to be doing. Your blog has really helped me alot.

    I think it’s more complicated than the either-or choice, and I think it’s not enough to say either ‘neither’ or ‘both’. I pray because prayer changes the relationship between me and G-d, thereby changing me within the consistent immutability of G-d, and changing G-d as my own consistent sinfulness butts up against my feeble grasping for G-d.

    In my process-relational perspective, the answer is most definitely both.

    I didn’t vote, because the only honest answer is “Neither one.”
