i looked out on this body
this body
all of parts
none the same
some thinking it is one huge brain
or hand
or foot
or mouth
not so
it is, we are, his body
all parts
none the same
i saw this body
one spirit
one heart
his heart

back home
seeing another view of this body
all parts
none the same

Ecumenical extremes:

One extreme: all Ecumenicism is good because it fosters unity.
Another extreme: all Ecumenicism is evil because it fosters doctinal compromise.

I'm thinking truth is somewhere in between.

Conservative disengagement
Church as tapestry
Identifying non-negotiables
Local congregation involvement in the regional and national life of the denomination

Ponderings will follow…
