The Loss of Civility

Is it possible that civility is gasping its last breaths in America? What ever happened to honest, open, robust debate?

I believe in the power of reading because I’ve witnessed it first hand.

Let me tell you about a (sadly passed away) good friend called Rusty.

Rusty was that difficult Dutch Reformed naysayer when I reached Reedley, CA. I was warned that Rusty would be against everything. History seemed to agree. At most church meetings the loudest disagreeing voice was normally Rusty’s.  But, a year before I got there things were beginning to change in Rusty.

The reason  – guided by God’s Spirit – included a book Rusty had read. It was called An Unstoppable Force: Daring to Become the Church God Had in Mind @ Erwin Raphael McManus. (Published 2001 and now newly reprinted.) I’m unsure how this book got into Rusty’s hands but it stirred him.   Read more!
