Glad I’m not the only one. I love about the Episcopal Church that we leave the mystery in without needing to batter people about the head and shoulders with it. The attitude is, we are doing this in here, and if you want to join us, cool. All are welcome at God’s table. Christianity is a Mediterranean mystery religion so if you drain all the mystery out, what’s left?

I love the Eucharist because it’s always there to heal me. I’m also in the choir because I wouldn’t have it any other way. If I’m in a church I gotta be in the choir. I feel sure that in prehistory we could sing together before we could talk together.

A lot of people get bothered by the presence of a creed but I take a cue from Nadia Bolz-Weber. We’re saying that together so we are in it together. If you are having a problem with one part of it, maybe I can believe that for you. Maybe you can help me out with something else.

Anyway, Gutbloom, if you are ever in Providence & it’s Sunday morning stop by Grace Church on Mathewson St.
