Hello everyone. I must say that some the recent comments in the Palin discussion have reached the level of truly appalling. The fact that this is an online conversation does not mean our Christian graciousness and decorum should go out the window. These are our sisters (and brothers) in Christ. Some of you may not have much practice in thinking through your faith/decisions/scriptural interpretations out loud with others but it can be done without hurling insults. Meeting people who approach things differently than ourselves can be a great opportunity to get grounded in what we already believe (as it causes more thought, study and searching of the scriptures). And sometimes (believe it or not, boys and girls), we find that weâ€™ve been wrong. By all means, letâ€™s continue our conversation but if we canâ€™t speak charitably with one another, thereâ€™s no point.
