The situation in the classroom and in a seminary, even a small one such as Phillips is, has gotten complex to the point that I’m not sure the concept of safe space will hold much longer. We don’t seem to be able to juggle the competing needs.

With today’s average age in mainline churches at about 60, with many of the largest financial contributors to those congregations in their upper 60s, their 70s, and their 80s, and with such different church-going patterns among the thinner younger generations, there is no doubt that the “death tsunami” will powerfully disrupt an entire way of doing church.

Why in heaven’s name would people of faith lend our symbols to the state? How does saying a book or a monument has “historical value” do anything other than relegate those symbols to the past and thus strip or diminish the faith claims that these symbols contain or represent the power to change lives?

Would Christians be able to join together in a fast—in a day of self-examination and penance—during some Lent, for our national sins, for those ways in which through actions taken and actions neglected we, as a nation, have broken relationships and acted as if the U.S. is the standard of laws rather than one nation, among others, accountable to a higher law?
