Another post that got waylaid in the draft box...here it is, finally.
If we maintain the open-mindedness of children, we challenge fixed ideas
and established structures, including our own. We listen to people in other
denominations and religions. We don't find demons in those with whom we
disagree. We don't cozy up to people who mouth our jargon. If we are open,
we rarely resort to either-or: either creation or evolution, liberty or law,
sacred or secular, Beethoven or Madonna. We focus on both-and, fully aware
that God's truth cannot be imprisoned in a small definition.
