The Anarchist Reverend focuses in on one of the most-overlooked aspects of the Church’s nature:
It’s a place that strengthens us for following Jesus every day. Now, I understand following Jesus to be about radical social change and so when I think about being equipped and strengthened for that journey, I’m looking for serious encouragement and support. I need people to remind me that I am living in an Empire and I need to not capitulate.
I’m not going to cite Derek Webb again, but I could.
