being remade, being refashioned is costly, painful and……always worthwhile!
“The church is the rough draft of a new humanity, and the Spirit is its author. Rough drafts are always a rather tragic state of affairs. But as every writer knows, there’s only one thing to do about it, and that is to revise. That is the work of the Spirit: revising and repairing the human race, slowly and patiently, one fragment at a time.”
From Ben Myers, ‘Christ the stranger: the theology of Rowan Williams’
