Blast From The Past: 'And'

1970: "The word "and" will be a often-used conjunction in the emerging church" The Emerging Church, by Bruce Larson and Ralph Osborne, 1970.

2005: Dwight Friesen has a blog named "And."


"It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other.
The man who fears God will avoid all extremes"
Ecclesiastes 7:18

Thought: The word "and" keeps us from polarities and unhealthy extremes. It teaches us to listen, and to see with synoptic vision.

I guess I am blogging this because many of the complaints I hear go something like . .

"Emerging church people choose ___ over and against _____!

Technorati Tags: ,

and they believe ____ over and above _____

and they _______ rather than_____

and they believe ________ instead of _____

and they have replaced _____ for _____ !"

This is why the word "AND" can go a long way. Keep it in your pocket.
