For the pod: How to learn from people you may disagree with

I haven't posted a Driscoll talk for a while. This is called 'Best of: The High Priestly Prayer' and what I love about it is he describes his willingness to work with anyone who loves Jesus. His description of his working with the Assemblies of God made me laugh out loud. It is so easy to become tribal, critical and partisan and huddle in our little worlds with our little opinions and at the end of it all discover we haven't really impacted anybody or changed anything.

A pal says he likes this blog because I post people from all sorts of spheres of the Christian world and culture and its canon.

Why do I do that?

Because we are all learners or should be if we are following Jesus. We also have to learn to see the good or as someone once said 'eat the fish and spit out the bones'. If you don't have time to listen to the talk then watch Driscoll describe why he has invited Craig Groeschl to speak at the R2 Conference and it will give you a flavour of its message.
