Well, call it official. I’m launching an exploratory effort before
running for President of the United States starting, as Anna well put: I have these fantasies some days about . . . starting up a progressive christian fellowship. That article made me think maybe I’m not wierd, maybe I’m just all postmodern, being Gen X and all.
Well, I know I’m weird, but perhaps that’s just the postmodernist speaking. Unlike her, in the part I clipped, a country church isn’t an option: I’ll be inside the Beltway.
Now, to prepare: how will I make a living, apart from a ministry? what will be the shape of this church’s mission? its primary consituency? how would it run? in what ways will it be recognizable to others within the UUA, and which ways not? what kind of relationship would I want this church to have to the UUA and ecumenically?
These are a few of the dozens of questions that I’ll need to get my head around in fairly short order.
