A Church Splits?

It appears that our church will be undergoing a split. I am 55 years old and have never seen such a thing first hand before. It appears to me that it is a matter of good people having honest but irreconcilable differences of opinion. I've always thought that many congregations in our fellowship separated over rather minor things and that breaking up and forming separate groups was always wrong. In this case, though, I think it may be best for all involved. Time will tell.

I don't ever think it's a good thing. A unavoidable thing? At times, probably so. But if the church can't forgive and love it's own, I fear our words seem awfully hollow.

I struggle myself with truly embracing people that have views I abhor. But I feel it's of the greatest importance if I am to take the call seriously to be a part of the body of Christ.

I hope that things look better and healing can happen when the dust settles.

Jay,

Nice thoughts. I've tried to respond in several ways but I keep erasing what I've written because I can't pitch it right. I should wait till the dust settles.
