“Graphic Novel pt. 8”

16 Jul

This is a post from one of my mentors, Mike Metzger, from when I lived in Kansas City. I think it does a great job of showing how we can speak past each other when not realizing that in the conversation we are coming at it grounded in two different points of view – let confusion commence! It also illustrates the importance of institutions as what corporately defines our reality. Our hyper-individualism is why there is such a push-back to institutions from our culture today – we want to define reality on our own terms – this is also partly why the church has veered off course today…but that’s in my next post. More on that below.

Be sure to read the comment/response section because there are good questions in there…and there is also one tragically ignorant statement. You can’t fix stupid.

Graphic Novel part 8

I’m going to try to have a new post (my own “quasi”-original thoughts) up before I leave for Colorado, but we’ll see if that happens. I can tell you that my next post is going to make me a lot of friends within the church community (sarcasm intended). It touches on one of the reasons why I have left the church for the time being. I am still a Christian and I fully believe in the church but have not found one in Little Rock which wholly (or as best as possible) encompasses what I feel the church should represent. I’ll explain more in the post.

Cheers!
