The dirt in church reminds us that we all need to learn how to get along and grow in this quality of God called Grace. We will have dirt to deal with and each unique problem has ways to resolve.
Some of the dirt that flies around here is based misunderstanding what the other’s motives or attitude is. We hear half of a story and fill in the rest with our sinful imagination.
Much conflict comes from the difference in expectation between people. People get hurt and upset by what they believe should have been said or not said; and done or not done.
We can be quite insensitive to another person’s perspective and preferences. As much as possible, we must learn to live at peace with everyone.
