The Faithful Church Print E-mail

(Guest-written by the Rev. Anne Vouga (MDiv '08). Anne is rector at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Louisville.)

Sometimes it seems as if all that we clergy want to write and talk about is how to get hold of those precious "nones," the growing number of people who might still believe in God, yet do not consider themselves members of any religious institution.

"You watched structures that had been in place before your birth collapse like pillars of salt across the vast visible landscape - the farms of the Carolina Piedmont, the factories of the Mahoning Valley, Florida subdivisions, California schools. And other things, harder to see but no less vital in supporting the order of everyday life, changed beyond recognition - ways and means in Washington caucus rooms, taboos on New York trading desks, manners and morals everywhere." Packer, looking back over the past couple of generations, writes in the book's prologue, "The norms that made the old institutions useful began to unwind, and the leaders abandoned their posts."
