an interesting conversation...

... on CBC radio yesterday about whether "the Mennonites" are being naive by engaging in dialogue with scholars from the Imam Khomeini Education and Research Institute in Iran. Have a listen.

A good and important discussion, it seems to me. One wonders... could the same questions be asked of other Christian leaders engaging in dialogue with the "spiritual advisers" - or serving as "spiritual advisers" - of other administrations we could name with a history of war-making and human rights abuses and seeking "legitimacy" on the world stage?

Just asking.

I looked up naive in the dictionary the other day (not because of your blog) - it's an interesting word: artless; innocent; unaffected - or - foolishly gullible - or - produced in a sophisticated society but deliberately rejecting conventional expertise.
By the way, you must have at least 6 or 7 regular readers.
