The ending dying church
I’m not the only one asking questions about the future of the church. The Rev’d Mark Bozzuti-Jones from Trinity Church, Wall Street, has written a provocative piece.
What if some other religion or movement begins to convert world leaders, like Christians did in the early centuries? What if a new religion stands to embrace the claim it is the true religion of peace?
When the dust settles after the dust-up with the Roman Catholic Church all of us will have to answer hard questions about what it means to be followers of Christ. I suspect that we might have gone too far from the “mustard seed”. I suspect that our efforts to find better ways of doing the same-old same old will fail. We all might have to find new ways of being church. I bet nobody knows what that will look like. One thing is sure, we cannot sustain this way of being church (nor should we). Or should we? Is the end or the beginning?
Go read the whole thing. And salute Trinity for having such edgy priests.
