As we enter Holy Week, here are some thoughts from Fr. Richard Rohr on what Christianity can/should be.
Rohr’s four categories/aspects/characteristics of the new Christian reformation are:
- “an honest, broad, ecumenical Jesus scholarship”
- “a contemplative mind”
- “a conclusion that many of the major concerns of Jesus are at major variance with what most of our churches have emphasized”
- “new structures … new community mechanisms that can make this [new reformation] possible, because we don’t want to form a new denomination”
