Here it is — the most bestest thing about liberal religion in 2011:
1. I’m seeing less focus on administrivia and more focus on mission. I’m seeing less interest in clinging to power for no good reason, and more interest in developing greater spiritual maturation. I’m seeing more people smiling, and fewer people arguing.
In short, I’m seeing more and more religious liberals actually having fun while doing religion.
What could be better than that? Happy new year!
