the spirituality of dissent with poise

“It takes a while to dissent with poise.” A very elegant sentence. Spoken by Duncan, who describes the Forge flavour as one of antagonism; “antagonism towards ‘attractional’ church … There’s not a lot of interest in the engagement with postmodernity found in other quarters. Alternative worship is seen as just a tinkering with the gathered worship model.”

And then the profound sentence (which adds balance and nuance to what is perhaps the negative side of the positive strength in the prophetic gift that is Forge?) Anyhow, the sentence has become for me a breathe prayer for the week;

God, help me become better at dissent with poise. Amen.
