The beauty of a multi-voiced congregation

radref: Re-formation After Christendom

This was a very interesting post I read the other day on life in a post-Christendom world, specifically from an Anabaptist perspective. Check it out and let me know what you think...

Glad to have been pointed in that direction. Some very pertinent comments which deserve wider discussion amongst those who claim to be evangelical.

This for example: "From the beginning there was an uneasy tension between the life-giving encounter with God in Christ and the institutional appetites of the Christian church. Often the Christian faith has been far from mutual or peaceable. Christian 'mission' came to be identified with expansionist imperialism. Leadership became clericalism. Evangelism took on the baggage of coercion. Forthright defenders of the original shape of Christian community met either with exile or crucifixion".

It is an extraordinarily well written post from a non-American perspective, which is something I like!

The comments are appreciated. I've thoroughly enjoyed discussion around this post. We all owe a lot to Stuart Murray Williams for opening up this Post-Christendom debate. Shalom, phil
