Keeping Together Spirituality, Prophetic Critique, and Nurture via @glassdimlyfaith

Indeed:

When we look for this, we find the church weak, either nur­tur­ing per­sonal spir­i­tu­al­ity with­out a prophetic cri­tique (con­ser­v­a­tive), or focused on prophetic action with­out nur­tur­ing our spir­its (lib­eral). The church is Solomon’s baby, split in two.

In the words of my mentor-Church community,  The Church of the Saviour (now a “tradition unto itself,  having spawned numerous , active, missional communities)  :  There has to be a Journey Inward AND a Journey Outward.  Neither is subsumed or diven by the other,  and yet each nourishes the other.
