Agreeing on the big things

Your editorial on discernment was spot on (“Not my will, but thine,” Aug. 27). I agree that “God wants each of us to belong to a church that gives us joy, a church whose people we love, whose mission inspires us.” I also hope each of us can belong to that church even if not all the members agree with us on every issue, not just theologically but politically, realizing we love each other as followers of Jesus because of the bigger issues we agree on.
