When will we learn that our friends become our fellow congregants? If the congregation lacks diversity, could it be because our personal dinner parties do?
If the flaming chalice is the symbol of our faith, shouldn't we toss the anemic candles and smoke- free oil lamps and torch up a yule log at every service?
If the divine creative force is one and everywhere, and all are saved - shouldn't there be a lot more hugging going on?

If the whole country thinks we are the crunchy religion - why aren't we the crunchy religion? Why don't we ride our bikes to church, hold services outside, worship with loud R&B or rock n' roll music, hold vegan barbecues, have no printed orders of service, have svelte legs from marching in support and protest, create thousands of parent co-ops, and volunteer EVERY week to help fight poverty?
