Yes, we need change, but . . .

Brother Brim has done a superb job of describing the situation in which we find ourselves, and he has also done a fine job of telling us what any reforms brought about through the general conference need to accomplish. I am still reading and studying about the Call to Action proposals. I do believe that boards and agencies are generally too far removed from the concerns of the local church and from the Great Commission. I fear that some of the proposals which I have read may make this worse rather than better, however. I believe that we also need to do something about the seminaries which seem so far removed from the concerns of the local church and from the Great Commission, especially if we are going to spend a lot more money on them.

"Christians in America are no longer people of faith, we’re people of fear. Instead of truly putting our trust, faith, and reliance upon the Way, teachings, and example of Jesus, we put our actual faith in guns, our obscenely over-funded military, and in strong-man  authoritarian leaders."

– Rev. Roger Wolsey, a United Methodist pastor and author, in his blog post, "O We of Little Faith," on Patheos.com
