A couple days ago, I wrote about our need to control our anger when we discuss the issue of redefining marriage. I was planning on writing this post anyway, but I couldn’t get to it the day after that post. Then today I find out that one of my friends whose goal is to see Christ magnified and to pursue goodness and equality toward everyone got a bunch of hate mail and mean, graceless rebuttal posts in response to a blog she wrote. I’m convinced now, more than ever, that we need to do a much better job of being Christlike toward one another.

Overall, this past week has been a good week. Meditating on Holy Week has been good for me. Writing about it has probably been better. I was able to write for Single Roots yesterday. My home group leaders decided that we’d go through 1 Peter beginning next week, which is good because I need to get out of Pauline Theology for a while. I was praying about what to write today, or whether I should write anything, and I kept coming back to Ephesians as I’ve been studying that for ages (mainly due to procrastination). In reading Ephesians 4:17-5:21, my heart kept coming back to the redefining marriage issue.
