I do not enjoy conflict.
But today, I watched my Facebook News Feed move like a rollercoaster--from concerned leader, to angry protester, to jubilant child, to...every color of the rainbow.
And though I attempt to seek peace and compromise in most areas of my life (and feel most at peace when I can do so, for the sake of others and probably my own selfish comfort), I, unfortunately, have something to say. You've probably read it (on my Facebook Notes) before--and especially as I wrote my senior thesis--but in the last six months it has been added to and revised.
I have been wondering when to share it, and though I still don't think it's complete, I feel that not speaking today would be a bit cowardly.
It is for this reason I speak this word, below, today. Listen, or read, or do both; wait with me.
For both the people and the Church that I love.
