reborn into a new reality

I love the church, but sometimes my heart breaks for the church. I long to be a person and a people who can reflect the righteousness of God in the midst of a world that tells us otherwise. To be reborn into a new reality… God, may it be so.

The role of the church is to cultivate people who “can risk being peaceful in a violent world, risk being kind in a competitive world, risk being faithful in an age of cynicism, risk being gentle among those who admire the tough, risk love when it may not be returned, because we have the confidence that in Christ we have been reborn into a new reality.” – John Howard Yoder
