I recently wrote for the WNCC Conference Blog and riffed on David Watson’s new book Scripture and the Life of God. Here’s a blurb from that piece:
The church is more than we usually make of it. The church is not merely a house of worship, a social outlet, a service agency, or a repository of age-level programs. Instead, she is a vessel of God’s own design, the Bride of Christ, whose unique calling and giftedness is to the do the work of God in the world. What this means, in short, is that the church is in the redemption business.
