“It is time to engage again with the world as it is, not as a church in contention with it, but as a church with the faith to believe that the things we fear now about science and government and globalism, about lay participation and collegiality and women, can become the stuff of a new kind of Christian sanctity at a new moment in history.

“To have a transition going on in the church that does not also touch the world around it, is to have only public spectacle, not social transformation."
