Product8303_Photo1This quote packs a punch:

Our biblical story demands an offensive rather than defensive posture of the church. The world and all its resources, anguish, gifts, and groaning is God’s world, and God demands what God has created. Jesus Christ is the supreme act of divine intrusion into the world’s settled arrangements. In the Christ, God refuses to “stay in his place.” The message that sustains the colony is not for itself but for the whole world – the colony having significance only as God’s means for saving the whole world. The colony is God’s means of a major offensive against the world, for the world.

- Stanley Hauerwas and William H. Willimon, Resident Aliens: Life in the Christian Colony, 51.
