Susan Cox-Johnson has been blogging from the first ever gathering of bishops, cabinets and extended cabinets from across the connection.
All three of her posts (so far) are well worth the read. The title of this post here links back to her third post from today (Sunday). She offers the signs of hope and melancholy she sees, and then asks some great questions.
Here are some of them:
Doubt: Can 847 mostly gray haired over 55 types really do what it takes to change when we are all so entrenched in the "system?" Is there a way that we can listen better? How can a church that is so shaped by modernity find its way out of one paradigm and into another? Can it? Those who are willing to lose their lives will find them. The test of any of us at any time: Are we willing to give up who we are for who we may become?
I have some ideas about some of her questions, which I'll put into the comments, below.
But don't just listen to me. Offer your further questions, answers, postulates, and struggles as well.
Peace in Christ,
