Christian Conversations
As I was doing some research for my next group of postings, I was trolling through some blogs that I read regularly. I discovered a link to a blog written by a Methodist Minister in North Carolina by the name of Kevin Baker. His bio can be found here.

He started his blog to discuss "theological musings about faith, politics, and everyday life. Don't be surprised if you find humor, sarcasm, and tongue in check reflections along side more straightforward thoughts. Here you will find reflections more geared toward asking the right questions than finding overly simplistic and reductionist answers. Conversation implies community, so these reflections are meant to start discussion rather than end it."

Upon skimming through his blog,
Christian Conversations, I noticed his series on "Why I am a United Methodist." I found it not only informative, but challenging. He delves into the current divisions within the Christian church, mainly in America. He gives some of his ideas about fixing the problems, but invites others to share as well. Make sure to read the comments by readers. All the ideas presented are in a logical, realistic manner that delve even deeper into some of the conversations I am having with Angela Messenger regarding my faith and my decision to leave the Catholic Church and join the United Methodist Church almost 5 years ago. After reading through his commentary and the other comments, all I can say is, "Can't we just all get along?" In other words, why do we, as Christians, focus so much on our differences and so little on our similarities?

Food for thought....
