2 John 12-13

There is plenty more I could say, but I’d rather not write it down. Instead, I’m planning to visit you. It’ll be so much better to deal with it face to face.

People from the church here all say, “Hello.”

Everything from last week’s post about phoning it in applies here, too.

In addition, consider that it’s especially important to make it personal when the subject matter is hard.

It’s the time we’re most tempted to deal with it impersonally, of course. We’d rather not deal with the added stress of in-person confrontation.

Put it this way. In the moments when your head is telling you, “just send an email,” but your gut says, “you’ve got to go pay a visit and get this straightened out,” your gut is almost always right.
