Do we really have time to debate things like this?

I've been following, and taking some part in, two interesting discussion at the Reformed Catholicism website, here and here. The first concerns the necessity of ordained ministers presiding at communion. The second concerns what sort of weight to give quotations of the Church Fathers in resolving doctrinal disputes.

Any direct bearing on the main theme of my blog (i.e., Public Theology)? Can Christians really think we need to argue about such things at this present time, with so many things at stake in our culture? It probably depends upon how the argument is conduct. If Christians (even Christians of differing denominational distinctives) can maintain civility and unity (don't hold your breath) then maybe so.
