I voted, but let it be recorded that I protest only having a binary choice.
So moved! The motion carries and tony needs to out another option!
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.
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.
Pingback: Why Pray? [POLL RESULTS]()
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.”
