On being church...

The most important contribution that the Church can make to a new social order is to be itself a new social order.
-Bishop Lesslie Newbigin

The church is the church only when it exists for others.
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison

A homogeneous church in a heterogeneous society is an ecclesiastical heresy.
-Jorge Lara-Braud, Church & Society Magazine, March/April 1986, p 20

Africa, el ultraje del cual has sufrido solo se compara con el amor de tu Creador. De algun lugar de tus tierras vinieron algunos de mis antepasados. De ellos guardo tu ritmo y tu color, de los cuales hoy estoy orgulloso. Gracias! Posted by Hello
