The Curry Household years ago . . .
Mama Curry: “Young man, I told you to stop jumping on the couch! Now stop it right now and go to your room!”
Prebishop Curry: “Mother, I’m so encouraged that your statement is not so much a declaration of discipline as a testament of communion. The intent of the statement is to provide time and space for persons holding profoundly different theological perspectives on jumping on the couch and Christian life to remain in conversation, relationship and communion with each other in Christ.”
(inspired by Bishop Curry’s statement on the Primates’ Communiqué. Quite a contrast from Bishop Iker, eh?)
