All that followers of Christ are to be and do rightly flows from God's intentions for human life together, and the fullest revelation of that comes via the life of Christ.

This was the name of a book written by Andrew Sullivan a few years back. In it he argued, essentially, that conservatism had badly lost its way, had become overrun by the ideologues and was, in many ways, no longer really conservatism. This article heads in a similar direction. While I am not a political conservative, I do think we need a vibrant and healthy conservatism to provide the counter voice to progressivism. Both sides will wander badly off course without the dialog the two can spark in their more healthy incarnations. I found these reflections rooted in a desire to see a return to a "healthy" and "not so ideological" version. May he garner some hearers.
