    Really, really great article – a lot to chew on & a timely follow-up to Bobby Manning’s sermon on Jesus’ interaction with the woman caught in adultery. Major props to Church of the Res (love that church!) for their willingness to walk through the confession-to-transformation process with one another . . . as Miller says, living this out in community is *work* – but it is good work when you see the Holy Spirit bringing change in yourself or others! As for the nine options he shares, I like that their approach doesn’t seem to be formulaic (ie – if you commit X sin, then you must go with Option 8). There appears to be room for prayer & dialogue & for the response to be tailored to both the situation and the person – which probably better embodies a gracious (instead of legalistic) response.

    My initial thoughts 🙂 This will keep me thinking – thanks for posting the article!

    Julianna, thanks for your thoughtful reflections. I also like the fact that the 9 options seem more like an artist’s palette– opportunities for creative redemption, rather than a formula. challenging.
