Boxes and Bearing with the Body

"Even within the Church, we put others into boxes, and the boxes are little “behaviour” boxes. . . . After this exercise, we sit and wonder why our churches are not more unified. Personally, I believe unity in the church comes from unity of belief, not unity of behaviour. . . . If we look for unity among our brothers and sisters in Christ through behaviour alone, then we are not practicing the faith; we’re practicing behaviourism".

Kim has a wonderful article written about loving, judging, forbearance--and the pain of being "put in a box." Go read it, and be edified.
