Right and Left Both Have Room to Grow and Learn. Now, If We Can Only Admit It…

The topic of religious right/left conversations is a hot, but necessary one to keep in front of us as Christian people. We have more in common than we think. And the commonalities are stronger, deeper, and more central to our identity than any differences we can possibly throw at one another.

Dr. Dave Daubert of “Day 8 Strategies” has posted on his blog a great contribution to this conversation entitled, Responsible Living: A Shared Center. His point is that both right and left share a common concern of responsibility–whether for one’s self or for one another, we can learn from one another. In so doing we bear a fuller witness to the purpose of Christianity in the world and reveal more fully the grace and compassion of God.

  1. Rob – thanks for reposting this and for being a part of this important and timely conversation. Imagine if we could begin to pull off some of this kind of discourse across some of the chasms that currently exist!
