Trinity Episcopal Church (pictured above) and Christ the King (couldn't find a picture) -- both in Santa Barbara, CA -- are featured in this CNN profile story . I thought they did a good, measured job of presenting two perspectives and I appreciated both Brian Cox and Mark Asman as able representatives of their points of view.
I note with a certain degree of personal irony that it was Trinity, Santa Barbara I spent my adolescence avoiding attending and it was Christ the King where I spent my early years back-in-the-church going to Cursillo team meetings -- and now Trinity has become a beacon of welcome and vision while former Cursillo colleagues are on CNN using pointing out what that my relationship and vocation are "an abomination."
My, my, my!
And now, back to our regularly scheduled sermon writing.
