OK. It was more like a local eatery. But, hey! It made you look. On a more serious note. RevMitchell and I got together for lunch earlier this week. The good Rev. started a thread about our get-together shortly thereafter. That, in itself, is not worthy of news. People have lunch together all the time. But it sort of makes Baptist Board news. The good Rev. and I have had our share of theological spats on this board. At one point either one, or both of us, had the other on ignore. But yet, here we were breaking bread together. And you know what? No personal attacks. No theological donnybrook. It was two brothers in Christ enjoying fellowship over turkey melt sandwiches. We both took interest in what the other had to say, and concluded in prayer. We agreed to stay in touch and to get together again. What did I take out of getting together with the Rev? 1. It is difficult to be rude, hateful and condescending to a brother in Christ you have met in person. 2. It is possible to maintain our individual theological convictions without demonizing our brother. 3. When you look your brother in the eye you are looking at someone for whom Christ died. 4. I will interact with this brother in a completely different way on the BB. I will maintain my theological distinctives, and not shy away from defending them. But I will keep in mind that I am discussing/debating with a brother. The should effect my manner of speech. 5. I will try to extend the same charity towards those I have not met.
