There’s a lot of talk of restructuring and revisioning in the church.  Conversations are happening in many places at many levels.  But why should the church survive?  Any thought of “re” anything supposes something good that must be preserved.  What is that?

Today we continue a three-part BLOGFORCE challenge about the church.  Two weeks ago, the challenge was, “Why the Church?”, meaning the “small c” catholic church.  This week, the challenge is, “Why Anglicanism?”  Why the particular branch of the catholic church that the Episcopal Church is part of?  In two weeks, we will ask the question, “Why the Episcopal Church?”
