The Ad for The Episcopal Church in USA Today

Here is the Episcopal Church ad that appeared in the "USA Today" newspaper last week:

Some have criticized the ad for being too wordy, for trying to say too many things, or for not being visual enough. I, however, did not mind it. It seems to me that this ad uses brief summaries of our doctrines and policies precisely because those issues have been stake in recent well-publicized controversies.

I would have phrased a couple of the statements differently, but I didn't write it. The ad tries to  proclaim both our Christian orthodoxy and our inclusive spirit, and I appreciate that.
