Beyond Every Generation-Church Talk

Seems like this is talk-about-the-church week. I already posted these two posts and I really like Jonnie Russell’s take on the state of the church today.


“We are not God’s viceroys or regency, meant to manage the church as something for our God above. In other words, I think the more classically transcendent the God, the more static and institutionalized the form of church. The more static the institution of ‘the church,’ the more eerily concerned with membership and self-identity the body becomes (think from the conservative right through the evangelical spectrum and how and where these membership and identity questions arise).”

  1. Thanks for sharing this bit of the post! It was a thusly a post Tripp put up from me (Jonnie) for the Homebrewed site. I definitely agree that we need to think through “the church” in these more active and mission oriented terms!

    Thanks again for the link share!
