Training School

Although the church is not God’s new order, it is meant to be a hint of the new order now and, more, a training school for new-order people. Rightly, we declare the good news—the promise of God’s new order, forgiven and free—and then in our common baptized life demonstrate an inclusive bread-breaking love for all the world to see. What is the good news? We are being saved in a being-saved world. The church is a kind of kindergarten in which we practice new order life in the midst of our brokenness.
