Diana Butler Bass has an interesting post here titled “Rowan Williams and Katharine Jefferts Schori: Anglican Smack-Down.”
I’m interested in anything Ms. Butler-Bass has to say, having read her The Practicing Congregation, Christianity for the Rest of Us and her latest A People’s History of Christianity. I follow her on Twitter. This post is about the Anglican Church (and the Episcopal Church), but I find a lot in it that resonates with the current state of The United Methodist Church.
I find this particularly interesting because Butler-Bass makes clear that the issues are not theological – at least not theological in the liberal v. conservative or the orthodox v. heretic sense.
Read her post and tell me (us) what you think.
