On Being Christian

The Schoolyard or the Church? Our choice.

My friend and theologian, Christopher, is never one to mince words. His most recent post speaks to the loud statements issued in the press by bishops and archbishops over the past several days, and I heartily agree with him.

The true Anglican Communion will continue where the Gospel is being proclaimed and the People of God treat one another as Christ would have us: with love, patience, generosity, and a direct and heartfelt honesty.

All the rest is schoolyard politics, if not schoolyard bullying.

And it has worn thin, not being rooted in anything more than hubris.

Time to stop, even for those of us, perhaps especially for those of us who aren't bishops!
