We Need Reasoned Discourse
Similarities abound between the Anglican and United Methodist Churches. Both continue a long struggle to figure out how to deal with doctrinal pluralism and indifferentism. I've learned a lot from Tom Wright over the years, not only from his works on the New Testament (his field of specialization), but also from what he has written on the church. Here's a recent newspaper column arguing for a return to "reasoned discourse" within the church, moving away from mere opinion and the "more victimized than thou" approaches so prevelant today. Good stuff.
