Church of the Nabisco Man

Somewhere along the way, though, the church took on the American language of growth and turned it into both the new plumb-line and the new gospel. Growth is important: trust me, as a rector I very much want the Church to grow. But often what we refer to as church growth has little or nothing to do with evangelism, which is a little weird when you stop and think about it.

Bread is a big deal

I remain convinced that if humans could, would, just sit for five minutes and wander around in their own feelings like one would wander a garden; then there would be peace on earth.
