5 Pointed Thoughts For Today

5. My vague awareness that some Christian somewhere has been mean or judgy does not affect my willingness to affirm traditional Christian teaching.

4. You will not see heartfelt apologies here, with me purporting to speak on behalf of the "Church," whatever someone means by that.

3. If you say, "I'm inclined toward a certain sin with a stigma, and frankly, I fail more than I succeed, but I want to live in accord with God's will," that begins to elicit my compassion.

2. I am shocked! Shocked that a sinner who made peace with a sin found a "home" in the Episcopal communion.

1. Sinners always say they want to find a place that's "welcoming." Just once, I want to look at them and say, "You know where else is welcoming? Hell."
