Everyone Has a Story
You Are Holy
Writing a New Song
By Stephen Moor
In the throes of this conflict many churches split along generational lines. When this happens, immense treasures are lost within congregations. The progressives lose the wisdom of the traditionalists who often prove to have more experience and greater stability. The traditionalists lose the driving force to push ahead to new undiscovered frontiers of experience and growth. Instead they become content where they are or remain stagnant as in-the-box thinkers.
I have made it one of my goals to try and bridge this divide. I want both parties to be fed and to learn from each other. This happens when everyone works together, mixing both the new and the old; the changing and the static. I have written "You Are Holy" as a prime example of what I'm trying to say. It draws the two elements under the umbrella of poetry in the hope that it will stimulate new dialog among God's family.
