Here’s some more Will Campbell for you all. He continues to impress me the more I read him:
Katallagete! “Be reconciled,” since we are all already reconciled in Christ’s “purpose in dying for all.” This is the only word the Christian brings to the broken relationships between and among men. Because the source of reconciliation, the Word made flesh, “came to dwell among us,” we have no doubt about where the service of reconciliation ought to lead: not into the falsely secure world of a Christendom which denies the work of the Lord by its defensiveness and isolation, but into the genuinely insecure world of politics, wars, poverty, hunger, violence and insurrection — that is, the world into which Christ came and lived, by which he was murdered, and for which he was raised to life.
