I've been reading and hearing a whole lot about trust the the lack thereof within the UMC. Between clergy, between the clergy and the Superintendency/episcopacy, between the laity & clergy. Trust has to begin somewhere. At some point, someone is going to have to make the stand you advocate in your penultimate paragraph. The thing is, why are some making it a call for others to do? Until and unless more voices such as yours, Jay, make it clear that the brokenness experienced as lack of trust begins here, in this place, rather than in some Other, I think we will continue to wander around pointing fingers at one another. In other words - I'm with you on this one.
