quote

The church... cannot be content to play the part of a nurse looking after the casualties of the system. It must play an active part both in challenging the present unjust structures and in pioneering alternatives.

Wc's admendment "It must play an active part both in challenging the present unjust structures and in pioneering alternatives" - as lead by her head. . .Jesus the Christ.

Other wise it is an activity done apart from Him - and apart from Him we can do nothing. I believe this is why the church is so disconnect. Much activity without being plugged in the Vine.

good addition...
it's too bad we have to keep adding that... because the church so often doesn't get it... or forgets it
