Change is a vital part of growth in our faith and life experience. Often the church errors on the side of conservation rather than embracing change. However, individuals change as they learn more about themselves and God. So did the church. Ananias reaches out to the Ethiopian, Paul to the Gentiles, and the church to the world around it. Embracing and interpreting the meaning of God's love revealed in Jesus Christ to those who are different requires knowing just what is at the heart of the Gospel so we don't mistake orthodox doctrine for God's inclusive love.
