Creedal Christianity allows the Christian to embrace both the body and the spirit

"Creedal Christianity allows the Christian
to embrace both the body and the spirit,
to pursue both internal transformation
through prayer and
the transformation of society through prophetic engagement."

Luke Timothy Johnson

Thanks, Peter, both for your kind comments on my blog and for the link to the Creedal Christian blog. I would love to sit down and engage Fr. Bryan on the points he made in the Failing Christianity post.

I personally have been baptized twice (I have a complicated spiritual autobiography) and only when I was in EfM learned that the validity of a sacrament is not in who administers it (which is why I was baptized twice), but comes from God.

Also, we as Episcopalians cede much of biblical knowledge to Evangelicals when we should not. For example, my neighbor in Maryland and I used to discuss our faith a few times a week as we walked. She went to a Willow Creek church and had no idea that the book of Job was in the OT. Yet many of us think they know the Bible in that particular strain of the faith better than we.
