Missing the Point

"That's me in the corner. That's me in the spotlight losing my religion..." – from "Losing My Religion" by R.E.M. on Out of Time

I grew up around lots of conservative Christians. I was one of them. Most of us seemed to believe that our progressive counterparts were losing their religion. I've spent a good portion of my adult life around progressive Christians. I've become one. Most of us seem to believe that our conservative counterparts are losing their religion.

This is to say, everyone thinks that everyone else is missing the point.

Which leads me to wonder if most of us might be missing the point.
