Such great questions N.T. Wright asks about those little ways we may or may not compromise to function in a “monstrous” society. What concerns me, about myself anyway, is that things that may have bothered me in the past, don’t seem so bad now. I’m quicker to shrug with a “wuddayagonnado?” attitude. And I’m not proud or pleased about that. It’s getting easier to do what’s comfortable, less likely to offend, take a “well, it’s not as bad as _______” attitude. I don’t want to just go along to get along, but sometimes it feels like that’s what I’m doing. I used to be a black and white thinker, but as I’ve aged and matured I’ve welcomed and understood that there is a lot more gray, but boundaries of black and white still exist. I can’t treat the gray like a fog.
