Beyond the Moment

by Douglas L. Anderson | February 2009

Thanks for the work you do. There are plenty of good ministries in the world, for which I am grateful.

Thanks for the work you do. There are plenty of good ministries in the world, for which I am grateful. A few are great ministries because they speak to, into, and beyond the moment—all from their best effort at understanding biblical history and content, church history, and world history. You do that well. Thanks. And thanks for the depth of relationship with God that I find embedded in so many of your articles and features. I appreciate your voice in the world.

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)
