CHURCH needed to be about Compassion and Community,
less about Commandments and Coercion.
Church needed to Hear other views with Humility
not simply expelling dissenters, labeling them Heretics.
Church needed to be about Us,
not labeling some Unclean,
Unfit to be members.
Church needed drastic Reform,
less Restoration, Recrimination, Retaliation.
Church needed to be about Charisma, Cooperation, and real Communion,
less about Conformity, Compliance, and Constraints.
Church needed to be about Healing
less about Hell and Head.
I found what I needed
Outside the Bushel.
Church needed to be about
not about the next.)
