I do have a sense that the body of Christ at Central is being torn apart and rearranged and reassembled by loving but firm hands. Anna’s words in Luke 2 come to mind -- “This child is destined for the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be opposed so that the inner thoughts of many will be revealed” -- no matter how the vote turns out, people will have to live with what has been revealed about them through their actions and their attitudes in all of this. Hopefully it will lead some to repentance and others to greater risk-taking for Jesus. What will we become? Only God knows.
