Spurred by reading Bishop Pierre Whalon's fine essay:
Ecclesiology revolves around the difference between what the church is, as opposed to how it is administered. These are really two entirely different things, as different as Humanity (which is one, inclusive, and global) and Government (which is diverse, particular, and local.) It is the old dichotomy between being and doing. Perhaps if we acted more as we are, we would be better off, both in the world and the church.
