    After last night’s meeting I found myself chatting with a number of people and forgot to hand in my survey sheet, not that I’ve got much (or important things) to say but here it is:
    – creating space in principle: include, include, include everyone and every church
    – about the Confession of Faith: this is a guide, not God’s word
    – practical parameters of space: ALL people, ALL congregations need to teach/learn to accept that ALL God’s people need to be accepted and trusted rather than feared. We have to learn not to condemn the OTHER.

    I appreciated Peter’s thoughtful comments in response to a speaker’s comment on sin. His were healing words and yet a soft reminder to all that we need to walk with care, no matter where on the affirming-rejecting spectrum we find ourselves.
    May you continue to be guided by Gods’ spirit.
