A few theological points:
God works through politics. It is sometimes painful, aggravating and challenging, but he is there. Churches should be more political, rather than less.
For this reason, process is crucial to any organization. Process should be understood by all participating.
The work of Jesus is comprehensible first by understanding his process: parable, story, and revelation. His process of interpreting scripture must be our process. This is one example of "following Jesus:" recognizing the the beauty to which scripture directs us. As sinners, we will always be arguing over some form of content: but it is the process that allows us to work through our divisions.
It follows that Scripture does not exhaust human experience. The dualisms, for example, in Galatians [Jew nor Greek, etc], are not the complete taxonomy of all binary systems. It instead points to the direction Jesus works in our lives - as someone who forces us to reexamine the yes/no stance we are inclined to take. Abundance, Joy and Freedom are affirmed because the chains of our habits have been revealed; our anxieties are redeemed not through an exhausted ideology, but through the Word, the communication of God, as represented by the cooperative engagement with other brothers and sisters clothed in Christ.
