Michael Spencer is doing a series called "The Liturgical Gangstas," in which he interviews six ministers representing six Christian traditions. He asks them the same questions and posts their responses in a panel format. The Gangstas include an Eastern Orthodox priest, and Anglican priest, a Southern Baptist pastor, a Roman Catholic writer (not a priest), a United Methodist pastor, and a Lutheran pastor.
In the latest post, he asked them:
What is the most misunderstood positive thing from your tradition?
What are the most ignored weaknesses in your tradition?
Of the five other traditions represented, whom could you learn from the most?
I loved the responses. It was good to see these guys clarify some of the stereotypical criticisms of their tradition, honestly admit their weaknesses, and praise the other traditions for the things they do well.
Good stuff. It's a long post, but worth the read.
