Challenge in Community
Community life is the great testing ground of faith, whether in a family, intentional grouping, religious congregation, or the church itself.
John J. Pilch
To be considered as “a Gentile and a tax collector” is to be designated an “outsider.”
What we love indicates the sort of people we are, and therefore making a decision about this should be our one concern in choosing a way of life.
Confronting in Church
If we have been forgiven enormously by God, we should pass on that forgiveness generously to our fellow human beings.
Reginald H. Fuller
Transformation takes place through hearing the Word of God and through offering oneself to God in union with Christ’s suffering.
