Good or Bad, The Matrix

Choices seem good or bad in relation to what is not. We discussed in Sunday School today choices between good and good, bad and bad, good and bad (the usual thought) and, in a proper two by two matrix, there should be one more type of choice. Is it "no choice" or something else?

We also discussed about the PC(USA), what is next and "revival" was suggested. What does that mean? 

According to The New Oxford Dictionary: Revival, noun - an improvement in the condition or strength of something a revival in the fortunes of the party an economic revival.
• an instance of something becoming popular, active, or important again cross-country skiing is enjoying a revival.• a new production of an old play or similar work.• a reawakening of religious fervor, esp. by means of a series of evangelistic meetings the revivals of the nineteenth century a wave of religious revival.• such a meeting or series of meetings an usher for the revival had the job of helping the sick who went up to seek healing.• a restoration to bodily or mental vigor, to life or consciousness, or to sporting success the thunder and lightning affected his revival in the third round.
How can we do this? Should we? 
McClaren and Compolo's "Adventures in Missing the Point," in the "Worship" chapter, warns against addiction to infatuation, leading to seeking "The Feeling" and missing maturity. I like the concept and know I seek "The Feeling," always looking for the new. All I do is look for the new, I don't appreciate the old at all. I lack maturity or desire for maturity, being responsible and doing the boring (my perception) work of the same old thing.
I am talking so much about spiritual things lately, all the meetings and readings I guess. I hope more business, technology and my world topics, something interesting, come up soon.
