Flawed and Freed

Letter to the Editors

I would like to apologize to David Bazan on behalf of all believers as he calls us to task for letting him and others like him down. Yet for mid-life and older folks like myself, I would also like to ask all the Davids to consider what we have come to know in our hearts: This difficult but freeing way has to do with an acceptance—even an expectancy—of the flaws of others, which are our own if we are to be honest. The liberation to follow Jesus comes as we try to live the changes we would like to impose upon others.
