Speaking the Truth in Love
The gospel brings peace and unity. What could be more needed today? It's not just that we seem to be losing the ability to speak respectfully to one another across lines that divide us (ethnicity, culture, politics, economics, lifestyle...); it's that we don't seem to talk to people outside our tribes at all. Whether we are afraid to do it or just don't know how, it doesn't have to be this way. For the sake of our future, it can't be this way. The work of justice and reconciliation requires it. The good news is that Jesus Christ offers another way. "Speak the truth in love," the letter of Ephesians tells us. It was written to a region divided in as many ways as ours, but it invites us to a new peace and unity grounded in the claim that someone had come back from the dead. The letter explores the implications of that claim and expounds the ways it completely reshapes how we speak to one another. Let's read the text and re-engage the conversation.
