Ruth Gledhill blogs “The Church’s Unfoundation”

This rewriting of a hymn made Ruth laugh. Tears might be just as appropriate. It’s song written as if from a TEC* point of view and the last verse goes,

Our church has no foundation
And Christ is not her Lord.
She is our new creation
By our own mighty word.
The Bible’s too oppressive,
And morals leave us bored.
Who then is our salvation?
It’s our own selves – adored

* The Episcopal Church formerly known as ECUSA.
