Evangelism and Discipleship (4)

The mission concerns the way in which power is practiced in the world. [...] The mission is profoundly conflictual because the present population of the sick, dead, lepers, and demon-possessed is not an accident. [...] The walk is to cure, the restoration of broken humanness to full creaturely well-being. The talk is to assert the nearness of the new rule. [...] The talk makes the walk possible, and the walk is to heal, to break all vicious cycles of diminishment that violate the intention of the creator. [...] It requires at-risk human bodies acting in obedience to the alternative to break that alien ruler, to make restoration of life possible.

原文出自 The Word that Redescribes the World by Walter Brueggemann, page 98-102
