Finding a Place to Belong

Over at her blog, Meredith answers a reader's questions and concerns in a post entitled Finding a Place to Belong.  It addresses many of the issues people have emailed me about, (although it addresses a reader who is thinking of leaving the church for an evangelical one) and talks about distinguishing between: 

religion from faith;
religious identity from cultural identity;
being catholic from being Catholic, and
parish life from the Body of Christ

Dr. Gould's analysis is worth a read in the context of inclusion issues. She is going to follow up with a related post soon and I'll link to that as well.
