The church is in the midst of a new reformation, and the stakes couldn’t be higher, a prominent progressive speaker told a Morristown audience.
“Religion must stop being what it has been until now, which has been an essential source of intolerance, contempt for the other and even mad apocalyptic violence,” James Carroll said recently at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. “Survival of religions is not the issue. Neither therefore is survival of the church.”
What matters, he said, is survival of humankind.
