Bishop Jefferts Schori is one of my modern religious heroes. I am reading her Gospel in the Global Village: Seeking God's Dream of Shalom. It is a book of sermons. I recommend it to anyone who has not yet read it.

Preacher DJ, Absolutely no effect. I was raised Roman Catholic. When we had the priest over to our house, my parents always offered him wine or a drink, and most often, the priests accepted the offer.

JoLynne, What a nice comment. Bill asked, "So if you've changed religious affiliation at some point, can you tell us why?" My initial response was, My beliefs changed. But then it occurred to me that it was more a case of going back to what had been in my heart since I was a child. I grew up in a very inclusive situation and see God as a very inclusive and loving God. Returning to that belief took me away from what I see as the doctrinaire beliefs of most solely-Christian denominations.
