Over the past several days we’ve been exploring the Image of God and what it means to be created as bearers of His image. It is a marvelous thing to be made in the image of God.
We’ve also covered quite a bit of ground, exploring, searching, exchanging ideas and thoughts; there have been almost 500 comments made, not to mention a surprising number of emails, and I simply want to thank you all for that.
I was thinking about this some more, thinking about the diversity of views represented here in this journey, and I was struck by the fact that we have taken this little journey together in harmony, respectfully of others and in a way that is worthy of the image we bear, and I want to thank each of you for that as well.
Who said that Christians must be unpleasant or argumentative?
It seems that quite a few people say that, but I don’t believe them anymore, for we have shown that this does not need to be the case, and maybe that is the most important lesson of all so far. I don’t know about you, but for me at least, that is encouraging, and I also want to thank you for that.
Do you realize what we have here? We have “community”, and that is the most encouraging thing of all!
