Quote of the Week: True Religion
“Any religion that professes to be concerned about the souls of men [sic] and fails to be concerned about the economic conditions that corrupt them, the social conditions that damn them, the city governments that cripple them, is a dry, dead, do-nothing religion in need of new blood.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

The Good News that Jesus came to preach was not just good news for the poor in spirit, but good news for the poor. He subverted the status quo and built an alternative social community, a new social order, a new way to be human. Jesus’ program is about reconciling people, economic justice and social reconciliation. He seeks to save what was lost at the fall. He invites us to join the Triune God in the renewal of all things. Let’s do it!
