    What inconsequential drivel. TEC is doomed with these people at the helm.

    As I read through this, I kept getting a vision: It was of the classroom of students in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, drooling as they sat through the hour of class taught by Ben Stein. Remember “The Great Depression? Anyone?”

    It is interesting, and perhaps sad, that Anderson says this course of action can lead to lonliness and rejection. What is being pursued here seems to be some sort of path to a glorious self-realization in which religious political action committees will take on an indifferent society fortified in defensive social structures designed to fortify a corrupt establishment. Hearing all the voices is important but ironically it comes from an organization that doesn’t listen if those voices come from Quincy, San Joaquin, Pittsburgh, South Carolina or Albany. Jesus promises us living waters if we would but ask–not this vision of some New Jerusalem.

    Sad. Remember that book a few years ago, “The Power of their Glory”, I think was the title. Rather tarnished now that “glory”, rumbling about arguing of bedroom habits, bring suits against their former parishes, equivocating the faith. Like a scorpion, trapped by reality, it stings itself to death. Sad.

    “Is the Episcopal Church any longer capable. . . ?”

    The link to the article is broken as of this post, but the above question, taken from the blurb above, is the only one we really need to answer.
