What does it mean to be saved?
How is salvation effected?
What is the role of the cross in salvation?
Last night was the first time I have been at a church discussion group where we did not assume that we all knew the “right” answers to these questions, and had no trouble with them.
Refreshing. But a bit disconcerting, perhaps. Does the faith community exist to help us with the questions or the answers?
I realize that there are skills/approaches I need to develop to be a better leader for this sort of gathering. I love it when I glimpse this sort of growing edge.
