Tony Jones has an interesting roundup of thoughts on his blog about the Christianity 21 conference he helped organise. It was, of course, immediately pounced on by a troll called Ted saying words to the effect of ‘yeah, well I bet no-one came’. After a couple of people retorted ‘who cares?’, someone with the moniker ‘Apostle of Blessing’ wrote this really beautiful and insightful comment that I just had to repost:
Crapped on people crap on people.
Blessed people bless people.
The trick is to bless the ones who are trapped in the “crapping system” in order to convert to the “blessing system”.
