Ready for the Conversation?
Following is the story . . .
On one occasion I was having a conversation with an acquaintance of mine about Ekklesia outside the box and about it all being about relationship and not religion. He wasn’t quite ready for this conversation, but in my exuberance I ignored the tell-tale signs and pressed on. Finally the conversation reached the limit of his Matrix-bound mind-set and he blurted out (along with a growing “Deer in the headlights” look):
“But what about Accountability!!!!????!!!!”. (Which is a topic for a whole other conversation).
My “inner-observer” had been eves-dropping in on the whole thing and I began to realize at that point that my friend wasn’t “getting it”. He wasn’t ready for the conversation. Later I give him my e-mail address should he wish to pursue the conversation. I still haven’t heard from him . . .
I’ve learned to listen for that still, quiet voice that whispers to me when it’s time to have the conversation and when to refrain.
