We found this on YouTube the other day. Love it. This is Church at its best!!
Here is a quote we use at Engage to summarize what it means to be the church in post-Christian secular North America:
When He (Jesus) called His society (the Church) together Jesus gave its members a new way of life to live. he gave them a new way to deal with offenders–by forgiving them. he gave them a new way to deal with violence–by suffering. He gave them a new way to deal with money–by sharing it. He gave them a new way to deal with the problems of leadership–by drawing upon the gifts of every member, even the most humble. He gave them a new way to deal with a corrupt society–by building a new order, not smashing the old. He gave them a new pattern of relationships between man and woman, between parent and child, between master and slave, in which was made concrete a radical new vision of what it means to be a human person. — John Howard Yoder
