Moderator Mardi’s Blog: Critics and Conversations

I’ve been overwhelmed by the tweets about my response to Margaret Wente’s Globe and Mail article on ‘The collapse of the liberal church.’ Thank you!

And this morning’s letters to the editor in the Globe contribute more to these important conversations, as does Lawrence Martin’s ‘Religion’s fair game if it motivates politics.’

General Secretary Nora Sanders and I decided together that she would write a letter to the editor and I would offer my response on our website. That has worked out well.

Never fear the critics. I repeat what I’ve learned well from Parker Palmer: “There’s almost always something to be learned from critics.”

And more importantly, Jesus exhorts us to not fear.

We are blessed by the conversations…

Opportunities to participate in God’s healing of soul, community and creation!
