The Catholic Church is much more than the Roman Catholics. The Orthodox Church is more than the sects from Greece, Russia, Africa, and Syria. What are these independent churches? Explore the independent denominations and their adherents, who long for the sacraments but have been alienated by intransigent dogma and cookie-cutter churches. In this book, Dr. John Plummer explores the sacramental churches that are beyond and above and below the mainstream. Some are arch-conservative, while others are completely New Age. In this rich tapestry of churches you will find mystical schools, esoteric, and occult teachings. You will meet gay priests and bishops, and female priests and bishops. These paths less walked include liturgies reminiscent of simpler times, and a few that blow right past any limit or tradition. Each offers hope and worship, not for a "melting pot" of mass-market religion, but for those who hold fast to their individuality.
