The church embodies the upside-down kingdom

By Gordon Cosby

We moderate and polish the world’s thinking, and name it Christian. The church embodies the upside-down kingdom. Whatever the world admires is probably not good, according to kingdom values. The church is always anti-empire.

What the church does is provide a place where pain can be touched and where the vision for a new world can be lifted up and held before people.

quoted by Peter Renner in “Good Is a Timely Word”
