Quotable Friday: Newbigin on the Church

“The Church is the pilgrim people of God.  It is on the move – hastening to the ends of the earth to beseech all men to be reconciled to God, and hastening to the end of time to meet its Lord who will gather all into one… It cannot be understood rightly in a perspective which is at once missionary and eschatological.”

~ Bishop Lesslie Newbigin, The Household of God, 25
