Bishop suggests claiming 'counter-culture' view of church

MIDDLETON, Wis. (UMNS) -- More than 300 United Methodists and other Christians gathered Feb. 21-23 for "Kairos CoMotion," where they celebrated their gifts and affirmed the need for a more inclusive church. Workshops dealt with a variety of topics such as providing leadership, promoting economic justice, addressing sexuality issues in the church, confronting racism. Speakers included United Methodist Bishop Judith Craig, who talked about Christians as "living stones" of faith. "The early church understood itself as a counter-culture," she said. "Claiming the early church comprehension of being counter-culture and the Wesleyan heritage of transforming culture may be the antidote to church blahs. Living stones can claim those concepts counter-culture, transformation of culture and make them our current credo."
