We vs Us

"....begin operating more by grace than by Law, by tolerance than by judgment, and with a deeper appreciation that we can accomplish more by working together than by constantly debating which side we are on?

I think we have gotten where we are by ignoring or putting aside 'Law" and embracing Grace but Grace and Law are not excluive to one another.

What you suggest would be to ignore the law when the "law" or commands also include "Loving God with all your heart" and "Loving your neighbor as yourself".

There are some doctrines that cannot be compromised.
There are some commands or "laws" that stand and can not be compromised. Would you agree with that statement?

What "laws" would you make less important or set asides?
What are you willing to compromise for peace?

Bishop Laurie Haller delivers the Episcopal Address at the 2017 session of the Iowa Annual Conference.“Are you modeling the love of Christ to everyone who walks through the doors of your churches? What are you doing outside your buildings for the people most in need in your communities, the state of Iowa, and this world? Are all of your many activities making a difference? Where’s your runway?”

– Bishop Laurie Haller in her first episcopal address to the Iowa Annual Conference.
