Katie Sherrod Commits Poetry in Image and Prose

Katie Sherrod has produced a beautiful, haunting photo essay on the Anglican Covenant. It may be the most moving and articulate essay I’ve seen on the subject … even after all these years of Covenant talk. It’s poetry, by my definition.

Here’s just a snippet from near the conclusion:
And I know this is exactly what the proposed Anglican Covenant will do to the Anglican Communion.

It seeks to wrap rings of bureaucratic barbed wire around the Holy Spirit, imprisoning the Spirit in processes of discipline designed to enforce unanimity of theology, of interpretation of Scripture, and who knows what else.
True. But you must see the photos and read the reflections that lead her to the concluding words of wisdom and insight.

Now ... go read "Barbed Wire and the Anglican Covenant."
