Giving Up–I’m Going Prosperity.

Why live a faith like this:

A Dangerous Prayer or A Four-Fold Franciscan Blessing or How My Body Has Fought My Prayers or Holiness: John Wesley’s Holy Club Questions

When you can live a faith like this?

Which seminary has a prosperity ethos? I’m switching… (you know the baby will be expensive and I’d like a Jaguar).

Rev. Ann Gordon has become Rev. Drew Phoenix and has been appointed by the Bishop for another year.  Uncharted territory, I guess.

Here’s the story.

I’m not quite sure what to say.  My gut reaction is that ordained clergy should be held to a very high standard of self-sacrifice; the church should be open to all, but how does that affect the ones that the church ordains?  The discipline is silent on this–though, like scripture, I’m not sure that the Discipline needs to address every single thing that  governs clergy.  Time for a little exegesis in the Discipline (get ready Judiciary).  I’m not quite sure what to say.

Where’s ole Mark Tooley’s comments on this?
