When the church’s primary concern is institutional survival we’ve lost our way. The question that has shaped our deepest anxieties and our chronic lack of vision has been, “Will we exist into tomorrow?”
The church cannot simply exist to hock Jesus in hopes of securing it’s own future. There must be a better reason to be church. We must be shaped by a better question.
And as Rilke said, “Live our way into the answer.”
- What does it mean to live your way into the answer?
- What questions does the church need to shape her future?
