Fundamentals and Fundamentalism

The image of baby and bathwater springs to mind when thinking of this theme, but when history, culture, politics, prejudice and the human capacity to vilify opponents are added to the mix, perhaps a tangled skein of thread better describes it. This franciscan examines a few threads and seeks to open us to new ideas and deeper awareness of the God of grace.
