Learning to Live… Through Jesus, Our Neighbours and Each Other

THE CHURCH AND RISK

What the church now requires ‘by faith’ :

  • Run risks for justice in a brutalizing society.
  • Run risks for forgiveness in a vengeful society.
  • Run risks for hospitality in an exclusionary society.
  • Run risks for generosity in a parsimonious society.
  • Run risks for the scandal of resurrection in a society that reduces everything to our reasonable possibilities.

The intention of God is to create a community of holy people who look like the God we have come to know in Jesus.     [Walter Brueggemann]
