So, I just invited a whole bunch of my Facebook friends to a viewing party for “The Third Way”
I thought “The Facebook” would give me a chance to personalize the invite, but it did not…If you got the invitation and you are confused as to why I may have sent it to you, let me explain.
Many of you are peers in ministry, some of you are former co-workers in the vineyard, some of you struggled alongside me growing up in the Church, some of you have been in my youth groups, or RCIA classes, or groups that I have trained, some of you are just dear friends who may have struggled to understand how I can maintain my faith in a Church that seems insensitive and unloving.
I invited you because I care enough about you that I know you may be struggling with understanding the Church’s teaching on this subject, you have had difficulty (as I have) explaining the Church’s teachings, you have had difficulty or been hurt trying to understand the Church’s teachings, or I just care enough about you that I want to let you know when I think the Church is trying to do something really good – something that I can be proud of them taking the risk to try to reach out.
I also wanted some opinions from all different perspectives on this. I know it’s not perfect, but I know they are trying. And I can only see it from my own perspective until someone else shares with me their perspective. I hope that even though I know you will not all attend, and I would encourage some of you not to attend the online gathering, I hope you will watch on your own time, and at least let me know what you think, so I can continue to work, within the Church system, towards the greater glory that we are all called to represent, in an informed, understanding and compassionate way.
Thanks – Scott
