Great post at charlesnestor.com regarding the ECM and parallels with Gnosticism. Whereas this will almost certainly be regarded as "unfair" and "broad brushed" and "you never dialogged with us" and "why didn't you just fingerpaint your feelings onto a hemp-fiber canvas and choreograph an interpretive dance so that we can all dialog about how it makes us feel" blah, blah, blah... it is quite insightful regarding the large (just about overwhelmingly large) liberal wing of the ECM - guys like McKnight, MacLaren, Bell, et al...

Anyway, worth the read...

we've recently initiated interpretive toe-painting into our "afterglow" service. The elders complained about paint on the carpet... I said.. "rip it out.. " Now we have a bunch of carpet squares in prayer station 14 to kneel down on while you recite the words of Saint T. Aquinus in latin text while looking into a frosty mirror..
Ohhhh.. it just gets us sooo in touch with... hmm... with... well, uh, something.
