This is symptomatic of larger shifts in evangelicalism which leave many of us wondering where we belong. Old alliances that I once regarded as defining my theological existence have changed, and I don't feel at home any more. On the other hand, I feel at home in an increasingly wide and diverse fellowship that has little to do with denominational boundaries. The boundaries are being drawn or erased in places where some seem too narrow and others too broad. Uncomfortably I find myself wanting to say to some: "Too broad!" And to others: "Too narrow!" . . . My sense is that there must be a narrowing and a broadening of doctrinal commitments for advancement of what is so precious among many of us who are deeply sympathetic to doctrinal faithfulness and purity.Should no one comment, I'll gladly take the hint and put this feature to a quick death. Perhaps a self-interview would be more interesting.

Just for fun, I offer a challenge. Who said this? (No fair googling.)
