Matthew Gatheringwater wrote this in the comments of High/Low:
Frankly, I donâ€™t see what the high church/low church distinction has to do with the bands. You are trying to emphasize the sacramental nature of Unitarian Universalism? Since when did we start having sacraments again? Oh, I get it: Your religion is Universalism circa 1800. Now, if only you could get some 200-year-old parishonersâ€¦
If this is an example of humor, it doesn't work (and the smiley at the end of the comment doesn't change matters.) and is quite hostile.
Perhaps you think I don't get on well with non-Christian Unitarian Universalist ministers, and that I'm apt to snipe at those with whom I have theological differences. You would be incorrect.
I needn't respond to your questions, but will because you have sincere interests. Just don't wrap them in sniping.
Now, on the the questions . . . .
