In the wake of the events which led to my departure from Kewanna, my father-in-law sent me a book entitled A Door Set Open by Peter L. Steinke. I have gathered many nuggets of wisdom from its pages. I found this quote within which I thought I should share with you. It deals with the church and the world, and how the church needs to exist in the world.
David Bosch is quoted as saying:
If the church is to impart to the world a message of hope and love, or faith, justice, and peace, something of this should become visible, audible, and tangible in the church itself.
