Word of the week
Jared Dupert, a youth pastor from York, PA, who participated in the Chain Reaction Summit, offers random "Words of the Week" at his blog. I like the idea, so here's my first, in honor of him (a fitting word choice, maybe?):
I thought of this because of the ongoing Middle East conflicts and the hysteria over Bush's latest Supreme Court nominee here at home. There's a fine line between the verbal assaults and character attacks that we Americans call political "debate" and the fraternal bloodfued that is Palestine, where descendants of Abraham's sons Ishmael and Isaac continue to terrorize each other. Here's to hoping for some toned down rhetoric in the months ahead (a pipedream, perhaps, but one worth pursuing).
