Last post I raised the question: how do we enact reform in a way that is kind, that is respectful, that is humane?
The prospect of deep structural and even theological reform is very intimidating. I identified three obstacles in particular:
- Identity (reform threatens our personal and corporate identities, particularly those of church professionals);
- Money (reform threatens our livelihoods);
- Few things are totally bad (reform threatens things we genuinely cherish).
Can we surmount these obstacles to move forward with real reform?
