Bravo to Cameron!
Yet I find myself wondering: what does it mean to be "proud" of my church?
The work of a church is to proclaim that we are loved, all of us.
Is "a church" really "a church" if it is not doing that work? Sure, it can be a specialized sort of non-profit, a polity, a quite complex and struggling social institution.
But unless "a (Christian) church" is announcing and striving to enflesh God's generous love for all humanity, I have trouble labeling it "a church." Just saying.
