Doing all in love

Great post by Ted Gossard today on controversy and Christian love. Here's the ending paragraph:

While we’re not going to escape controversy, it is required that we do all things in love. That we listen well. And be open to where we may be wrong, or where our position on a matter needs to be refined. That we hold as first priority that we love God and each other, no matter what our differences. That will require effort, but more than that it requires the grace and work of God. But it is part of our walk of faith in this life. That we will learn to love each other in spite of differences and things we may not like. Knowing that indeed is a two way street.

Read the whole thing. You may, or may not, agree with some of his stands, but as Christians, we are called to love anyway. Good stuff.
