I Beg to Differ: With the Right and the Left

Yesterday brought out some strong opinions about whether or not the church can forge a third way.  This idea of third way is a way of acknowledging that Christians differ in their conclusions about particular matters and seeks to move forward together despite the tensions that arise from such disagreement. Ken Wilson, a Vineyard pastor in Ann Arbor, Michigan, speaks about a third way in his recent book, “A Letter to My Congregation: an evangelical pastor’s path to embracing people who are gay, lesbian, and transgender in the company of Jesus.”  In our neck of the woods, The Meeting House speaks of embracing a third way on the matter of same-sex relationships.
