"God is all love"

Could it really be that simple?

Via The Huffington Post and Joe.My.God, the words of Sister Wendy:


Huffington Post: You've spoken out about gay marriage. How do you balance what you believe with what you have sworn to uphold?"

Sister Wendy: I believe in loyalty. We should respect our church, but never believe that the church has the last word. The church is saying "this", but I believe that sooner or later "this" will change. "This" is not the mind of our Lord. God is all love. It's a delicate balancing thing. The Church has changed it's position over the years, and because the spirit is with the Church, in the end the Church will always get it right. But in the end. The spirit of the Church is the meaning of love, which hasn't yet, perhaps, been fully understood.

Interesting. Love, eh? Pretty good answer to it all. Makes even this non-religious blogger think maybe there's hope.

Amen to sister Wendy. Too bad Christian Fundies don't read the Huffington Post...or watch PBS.
