In honor of my pilgrimage to the cinema to see Star Trek today, and in recognition of the profound amount of wasted energy in the Church these days, I give you the latest from ASBO Jesus:
What do I mean by “wasted energy”? Just read the so-called Blue Book of the Episcopal Church, and ask yourself how many of the resolutions contained therein will actually transform lives? Or consider the amount of time that was spent at the recently concluded Anglican Consultative Council meeting on fights over human sexuality. Or think about how much of the average Episcopal congregation’s resources are consumed by paying the heat bill and keeping the lights on.
You could use relevant examples from your own tradition; I just happen to know more about the warts of my own, beloved Episcopal Church.
