“Churches that follow Jesus, that really are practising in the Jesus’ way, are never going to be completely conventional churches… and that’s OK.  It’s more than OK – it shows that we’re faithful… having tension with the conventionality of the world, or the dominant narrative of the world, is a good thing for Christians.  We should never entirely fit.”

Diana Butler Bass

Maybe a better title for this entry would be:

‘Standing up or sitting back?’
