On Fighting the Good Fight Persuasively: Faithful Discipleship

I'm reading some good stuff by Tullian Tchividjian over at The Gospel Coalition these days. For example, this quote on discipleship:
Our task as faithful disciples is proclaimed by the Welsh poet Ethelwyn Wetherald: 
My orders are to fight;
Then if I bleed, or fail,
Or strongly win, what matters it?
God only doth prevail.
The servant craveth naught
Except to serve with might.
I was not told to win or lose—
My orders are to fight.
…and this by persuasion rather than by coercion.

True of the battle going on in Anglicanism these days, me thinks.

All here.
