To me, people like Richard Rohr, Brennan Manning, and Tom Wright represent attitudes to following Jesus that are simple, humble, wise, and eye-openingly life-giving. I respect them a lot.
So it's worth noticing their answers to the above question.
Richard Rohr: The future is ecumenical; discovering the Pearl of Great Price in each Christian tradition.
Brennan Manning: The future is little communities of mystics who have genuinely experienced Jesus.
Tom Wright: The future is international; a truly global family, not a western hegemony. Heart-soul-mind-strength, holistic, and post-postmodern.
And in many ways - I'm attempting not to sound too triumphalistic - this is exactly where Maria and I, and all sorts of other people we know, are at already, and have been for some time. None of us has our hands on the steering wheel of the Church, and that frustrates us, but to believe that this is what God has been, is, and will be doing is very encouraging.
