If the stereotype of a Christian is someone whose perspectives are black and white and rigid and often judgmental — then no wonder a flexible, tolerant, thinking person wouldn’t quickly jump to be so identified. Too often, of course, that’s exactly how Christians behave — so the challenge, perhaps, is what those of us who approach faith differently can/should do to in order to challenge those stereotypes. Probably it means being transparent models of a different way of living our lives and faith.

I like the idea of a “transperent model of faith”. That would include talking about our faith with people outside of faith. I find that difficult. Maybe it is my fear of the sterotype that keeps me hesitant.
