Do preacher's plot together?
Can we talk? When two people talk it is called having a conversation. It's a two way street and both can profit from sharing and listening.
When preachers are all saying that we have entered into an era of conversation about truth it does not belittle proclamation, it just adds the dimension of having to respond to the teaching without blind trust. Folks are smarter than they have ever been in some ways, and points of view have been developing for a long time.
We are in an age of knowing that conversations build bridges and dogmatic assertions sometimes lead to endless arguement. Someone mentioned that preachers everywhere are talking about the need to enter into conversation. I agree, and no one told me, but lots of books are discussing our times and how to reach folks.
