authentic ministry

found this on a friend’s facebook profile and LOVE it.

It is possible to witness faithfully in today’s imperial Rome, with its idolatries of materialism, nationalism and violence. Christians in the first Rome did so by choosing a different kingdom, born on the margins of the empire, governed by a crucified rabbi, and committed to the poor of the earth. Authentic ministry here requires pastors with courage to unwrap the church’s theology from the national flag and grow congregations shaped by Jesus of Nazareth rather than the dominant culture. It is possible-but it will cost.
