What do you see as some of the biggest challenges facing Anglicans today?
William Temple said, "At the heart of all heresy lies the refusal to deal with paradox." It seems to me that we want certainty, not paradox. Answers instead of questions and we place a higher value on 'winning' than 'playing'.
What do you see as some of the biggest opportunities for Anglicans today?
To offer safe space for folks to pursue the ultimate questions of life. I believe if we can create a climate in which people feel free to share their stories, doubts, hopes, fears, triumphs, tragedies sorrows and joys without fear of being 'cast into outer darkness' we'll be stepping faithfully into a new age of mission and renewal.

With the playoffs guaranteed I feel like being a real coach and giving some of my regulars a week off. But, then I read that if you lose and I win then I win the division. Such decisions! In the midst of a conflict with our contractor and other parish excitement it is nice to be able to divert into fantasy sports for a while. I think its time for Weisner to change the name of his team Cleveland was one thing but New Hampshire.
What's up Warren? I am new to the anglimergent thing. Hear Phyllis Tickle at a Clergy conference about a month ago and she kept telling us to check this out! Hope all is well I am sitting on the couch watching this monday night scoring fest! Provided Green Bay's kicker doesn't go off and score 12 points I will defeat Wes wankers or wockers or something like that. Are you gonna win your game this week? Brian Seage
Any friend of Jason and Rick must be a good guy. I am always gald to find someone who actually read the story of the life of John Hines. Thanks for letting me know. I hope you are living into his spirit.
I know Rick L. (not that he knows me) b/c he did his seminarian year at Calvary, Bastrop a couple of years ahead of me and Ken Kesselus was still raving about him when I was there in 99-00. AND...just another instance of "small church"...Rick's current assistant, Melanie, is married to Andrew, a colleague of mine in the even tinier world of Liturgical Studies PhD work...go figure!
Good morning, Warren. So glad to see you thriving in Worcester. My 22-year old daughter, Cece, is headed to Springfield in August to attend Western New England School of Law to study Public Interest Law. It does one's heart good to see one's offspring embrace working and caring for the poor and the oppressed. -- Lelanda
