Thinking about ordination? Think again.
A persnickety note: I'm beginning to tire of what could best be described as the "theology of blame", which I have seen time and again when people describe the Christian leadership experience. They cry how we are racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. In other words, we are the world. Believe me, I understand. Try being a poor half-breed in an all-white town filled with privileged liberals.
However, instead of wallowing in this self-serving flagellation, Christianity also holds the means for countering such negativity with deep and eternal import. We can whine about all of the "-isms", or we can leave the terminal wallow of the Theology of Blame and move into the place of light.
