I don't think I agree. Surely it isn't a matter of disavowing all doctrines, catechisms, etc., but giving them their appropriate place, as a part (not all) of that which teaches and inspires us, not as our own thought and voice. I don't think if we built our own spirituality from scratch, we'd have much of a chance of putting together anything worthwhile, that would actually sustain us. Surely the wisdom of the past and of present faith communities have their place.
