Quotable

25 May

“In a world of poverty, and injustice, the church should seek not simply to give ‘handouts’ to meet the bare necessities of those in need; it should seek to display the hospitality that pursues relationships of mutual love, wherever possible.  While there is still a legitimate distinction between communion in the body of Christ and the love of neighbor in society, we cannot act as if one is optional.  Moreover, the eucharistic table manners of the church community should help to shape its vision of love for the neighbor in need.”

-J. Todd Billings, Union With Christ: Reframing Theology and Ministry for the Church (Baker Academic, p. 117).
