If It Ain't Broke(n) . . .
Dirk has changed the name of his blog from BCC Blow-up to BCC Begins to Heal. I like it.
Last week, a commenter suggested I change the name of my blog, because "the system isn't broken; it worked." He was referring, I inferred, to the dismissal of the pastor as proof that BCC "works."
I will agree with him that necessary discipline was carried out. I disagree with him about the need for a name change, though. For one thing, BCC is Broken has a double meaning. One meaning is indeed a negative brokenness; the other is a positive sort of brokenness.
For what it's worth, I think both meanings are still true. So I'm maintaining the name for now.
Also for what it's worth: I believe that the church has begun working through one form of our brokenness and that God has begun working through the other.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
-- Psalm 51:17 (NIV)
