lectio divina

Sleeping with the Enemy

I don’t know if you all do this, but lately I have found that I get my best perspectives about what I believe by listening to the ramblings of those who I put in the “against” category of our Lord’s message.  One example is that I am a believer in spiritual practices and I found this wonderful description of Lectio Divina on a site that exhorts the “dangers” of spirituality beyond their conception.  Funny, I read this article and find support for it, not evidence against.

Also, the degree of hatred out there is amazing.  I have been in the camp of thinking that the Southern Baptist Convention is pretty far off the beaten path at this point (see this Wikipedia Article) yet the the site Apprising Ministries has this article where they think the SBC is basically too liberal.  I know that some would consider me a masochist for reading this stuff, but I consider part of my call in God’s work to understand (or attempt to understand) how others think and feel about Jesus and what he was saying.

I ask God’s blessing on these people and Love that they provide me insight into a society that I have a hard time imaging.
