Converge: (v) to meet in a point or line
Let us take this morning and see if we can get some of our ideas to converge. Don’t feel pressure, but I will offer some possibilities which will allow for convergence in our thinking, and therefore unity in our purposes.
- Talking a lot about God does not make you godly.
- Arguing about politics doesn’t seem to solve problems.
- Pointing out the differences between men and women is not helpful for acquiring the harmony necessary for human life.
- Judging people by the color of their skin is just as ridiculous as having favorite colors in fruit.
- Faith without works is dead.
- Having a conversation via text will never be as intimate as sharing a cup of coffee.
- The end of the world cannot be stopped by any one person, so we should singularly enjoy the Earth until it is no longer available.
- Complaining stops learning, which stops understanding, which promotes war.
- The world is filled with tribulation, so our best bet is to be of good cheer.
- Agreeing with someone else doesn’t make you stupid or absent ideas—just agreeable.
There are a few beginners—where we might converge our energies and work together instead of standing afar, peering at each other like cave people who are afraid that “those strangers over there” are going to steal our mastodon.
