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
