Gritty Faith and Gritty Facts
…and the power of ‘and’
For the third week, we’re inviting you to have real conversations, even if it’s tough. We’re asking you to lean in, listen deeply, and ask questions. We’re inviting you to rumble with vulnerability.
In today’s episode, we’re talking about gritty faithy and gritty facts. We explore the danger of binary thinking and offer two questions to add to your rumbling toolbox. Tim and Sara take a few minutes to answer the questions we offer based on the events of General Conference last week.
We start with the question, “What happens when the items below are thought of as being in competition with one another?” We’ll give you a few ideas about why binary thinking can be dangerous.
- Finances v. creative/worship arts
- Spenders v. savers
- Internal v. external
- Ordained clergy v. laity
- Local v. global
- Works of piety v. works of mercy
Then, we’ll consider what can happen when we change just one word and explore the gritty facts and gritty faith and invite you to hold these two things in tension with each other.
- Finances and creative arts
- Spenders and savers
- Internal and external
- Ordained clergy and laity
- Inward and outward
- Local and global
- Works of piety and works of mercy
Join us for part 3 of Let’s Get Ready to Rumble as we explore the gritty facts and gritty faith and the power of “and” so you can lead others in rumbling with vulnerability.
