Being Christians

One of the nice things that I see at seminary - and forgive me if I have said this before - is the way that people pick up the pieces after a disagreement. I've seen it more than once that there has been a bit of an edge to an interaction. The class or session ends and everyone goes their own way. Then the next week there is an air of uncertainty - how will those people be behaving? But it seems as if both parties have gone away, thought about the issue and decided 'at least some of that was my fault' and have come back with a desire to try harder and do better.
That gives me hope in the power of following Jesus.

You wouldn't want any counter-examples? :-)

Amen to that, Jenny - life's too short for holding grudges (besides, those are things best used for parking one's car in!)

PS: Do you think there's a message in the word verification for this comment: "unvoid"?

Hi Thomas - um, yes, counter examples are a little too frequent!
Thanks Steven. I wonder if God reveals himself in word verifications? We could start a cult!
