The Church Being the Church

In every generation God’s people live with some form of conflict. Usually it is a theological conflict between those who sense a call to a new interpretation and those who seek to defend a traditional interpretation. Sometimes it is a call from comfort to discomfort. Change is always difficult, especially for the religious.

But over and over the ancient revelation has shown itself to be alive and resilient, able to be open to new interpretation.
