As Bob mentions here – A group has formed to discuss Jim Wallace’s new book: God’s Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn’t Get It.

To whit: the Discsussion begins…

excerpt from Dave’s commentary on the Intro

  All too often, when it comes to contentious subjects, we adopt a
"don’t ask, don’t tell" policy. If I don’t really know what
you think,
I don’t have to deal with it. And that’s sad, because we can learn from
each other. But it takes a certain amount of humility to be able to set
aside our own beliefs temporarily to listen to the other side. And then
it takes a certain amount of restraint not to respond with our first
thoughts about why they’re wrong.

So humility and restraint are what we need. No wonder this is difficult.

and then an excerpt from Christy’s discussion of Chapter One:

I’ve heard a number of different organizers say, “La lucha misma es la victoria
– The struggle itself is the victory. Paul called it “working out my
salvation with fear and trembling.” It’s the sense that I have not
arrived, that this messy fight is really all about me, that I cannot
fully experience God’s grace without creating space for others to
experience it as well. My engagement with political and social issues
should grow out of my own process of continuous conversion.
