Dear Folks -
How did we get where we are? That's the question I attempt to answer in this talk. I am paying particular attention to what has had to happen for most of Protestant (and to some extent Catholic) Christianity to get from where it was fifty or sixty years ago to where "the church" is today. And, why and how has it become that the most virulent battles are taking place over the matter of homosexuality? If we can see that positions that were once held as unchanging and unchangeable have turned out not to be, then perhaps we can avoid getting involved in some rearguard action ourselves. Perhaps we can be open to the new era that wants to happen in our time.
