"Future Church"

Strange to have only found this site today. “Future Church” has some fascinating articles, so relevant to the renewal of Catholicism in our day. A campaign for optional celibacy for Roman Catholic priests is their banner project and they are supported by the no less important projects to increase scripture references to women in the Liturgy, celebrate women witnesses the place of Mary Magdalen as an apostle to the Apostles and women in church leadership.

Future Church believes that it must work with the Roman Catholic Church to create a climate for change. I personally think that change has now to be created by people brave enough to pursue the vision of an inclusive ‘catholic’ church. The Roman Church doesn’t want change. Perhaps if prophetic individuals and groups can show how the Church of God should be then maybe, just maybe there may be created a vision of hope.
