FAILING CHRISTIANITY

December 19, 2014

Of course I don’t mean that Christianity itself is failing but what is failing is the church establishment and it is failing because to a large extent it is out of touch with the man in the street.
The church which I love has become an exclusive club for those at a certain level in society. No longer does it follow the open to all principle which we genuine Christians should adhere to.
I mention in my book A LIFE OF SENTENCES how I was shunned by the church some years ago resulting in my breaking, albeit temporarily with the Anglican Communion. (A Life of Sentences from Amazon.com or olympiapublishers.com). Since then I have had a similar experience when the Vicar from my local church visited me a couple of times to celebrate communion at my home as I was housebound. He said he was going to arrange for a visit every six weeks, that was avove two years ago and since then I have heard nothing. What does that say about the caring church?
The thing is I still love my church although it obviously doesn’t reciprocate. Once again I will not be able to take communion at this most joyous time of the year which is a source of great disappointment.
The church, if it is to survive must realise it is of the people and for the people.
