I have been making a list of potential partners for many months now, jotting them down in my IPhone. This week I spent an hour or two one evening sending out emails to about the first half of them.
High on my list are seminaries, universities and collegesin the Lutheran and Episcopal traditions. I can't expect to be able to provide resources on my own, and I can't expect to provide support without receiving it.
So far the response has been really positive - but of course they need to discern if they are called to take part in something experimental like this.
But then, everything in life is experiemental - especially in this time of deep and persistent change. The church will simply be much more diverse in 20 years so let's start trying some things out.
