Last week our topic was the value of questioning. The take away was that people need to be free to question, and doubt, and explore their faith, for the sake of a coming to a deeper, more mature, faith. This Sunday’s question takes this questioning out of the realm of the head, down into our bodies – into our actions, our feelings, our decisions and our life style choices. Philip Gulley asks it this way: What would it mean if the church valued personal exploration over communal uniformity? The issue for this Sunday is how much difference in lifestyle is acceptable in the community of faith. On the positive side how much we do welcome difference. On the negative, how much difference we can tolerate! There are no easy answers here, but once again, we need to allow Jesus to be our guide.
