Regarding non-Catholic views of ecclesiology, the Anglican petri-dish often has useful postings. For example, over at Stand Firm, in a posting by A. S. Haley, I’d like to comment:
re 8 “What is your ecclesiology?” at far remove from the congregationalist view that starts with the individual, some might find useful the Catholic view as expressed in, say, Communionis Notio.
At any rate, just as an aid to conversation among folks who attach different meanings to ‘local church’, I think it helpful to use a word like ‘parish’ rather than ‘church’ whenever suitable. However, that in itself may be a perspective too Catholic for some?
