The blog post title is one of the “almost paradoxes” that come up whenever we begin the process of living and thinking from a non-dual perspective. Our usual response to the notion of weaker and stronger is that we are one or the other and that’s that. Of course when we actually look at it, things are not so simple. We are well aware of the things we are good at and the things we aren’t; where we are strong and where we are weak. Paul spends some time in Romans talking about what it means to be weak or to be strong in the context of community, particularly the church community.
We simply must remember in this discussion of weak and strong is Paul is talking about “disputable” things in the community, in the church. There is never a time when weak and strong can be applied to things that are evil; Paul uses the example of eating or not eating meat, not murdering or not murdering people. So once we get that out of the way we can talk about how we might make this happen. That’s what this Sunday’s sermons are after . . . let me know if I made it.
