704 reading digest 4

The Christian church understands itself to be the continuation of Israel, a people called to be separate from those around them. God's people form a community with a different story, vision, and way of life, an outpost of the new creation in the midst of the old... If that is in fact so, then the church ought not expect growth and popularity. Indeed, the church ought to be suspicious of what is popular and attractive... The church's contrary message upsets the way of the world and counters its natural course. But because it is not what is expected, the gospel has the potential of answering the deepest human need.

-Philip H. Pfatteicher, Liturgical Spirituality
