Reflection 2

Alex Bryan    Chicago 2013
1. We live in a polarized age, where the loudest voices often come from the most extreme places. What does this look like on a socio-political level? What does this look like in the greater Christian world? What does this look like within Adventism? What does this look like in your own personal life and vocation?

2.In what specific ways are modern “Romans” impacting the church?

3. In what specific ways are modern “Pharisees” impacting the church?

4.How do we move from a well curve to a bell curve — where a vibrant “middle of Christ” creates health and vibrant church life? Describe what a true “middle of Christ” would look like for you?

5. How do we build a community with members from left, right, and middle who can sit at the same table together with joy and peace?
