Over at The Resurgence blog, Jonathan Dodson has written a new post, Two Kinds of Simple Church Part 1.  In it he makes a  distinction between “Black & White Simple” and “Gray Simple.”

“The first kind of simple church ignores complexity. This kind of church calls it as they see it. There is one way to do things. They call the outs. This type of “simple church” refuses to frame the gospel in our context, insisting upon using old forms for new times…. There is another kind of simple church that understands complexity. To use baseball terms, these churches understand that what appears as an “out” to some may appear as “safe” to others. They realize there are two ways to spell gray.”
