The Church plays into this scene in a very similar way with 2000 years of accretions which have added layers and layers of additions which simply burden the institution as well as those people of sincere faith who want to find the true message and meaning of Jesus life.
The Gospels themselves begin this process of collection of additives which would make even Jesus feel burdened.
Diarmuid O'Murchu, with great insight, helps us to begin the process of removing the excess baggage accrued over centuries. This book, INCLUSIVITY, helps us focus on a basic message of Jesus which is a call to include all people of our world. The true vision of the Gospel is that we are part of a "Kingdom for all people", not a group of excluders who wish only to close doors.
The authors approach similar to using a telescope, not the narrow lens which sees things in miniature , but with the wider view of the other lens which gives a wider and deeper perspective of the gospels, as Pope Francis presents us with the vision of a merciful and gentle Church, focused on people in pain.
The author breaks multiple barriers and presents us, as adults, to realize that "exclusivity" and discrimination cannot be gospel values. This view crosses all lines, whether women seeking full rights and roles in the Church, or the gay community whose deep love is fully respected, or divorced and remarried persons who are refused Eucharist by a "locked door" institution, and fully recognized, not as "sinners", but as loving and sincere persons who have great spiritual gifts for the community and should never be excluded.
The author's vision and insight help us to truly visualize a Church that embraces all and only then do we realize the "Kingdom of God" , or as the author so strongly states it, "The Companionswhip of Empowerment", is a reality here, now with us
