reformation

“The need of the hour is reformation in the Church.  As reformation comes to the Church and sweeps through it, the first thing we will notice is that REFORMATION IS NOTHING LIKE REVIVAL.  Revivals, at least as we have come to define them, are readily contained within the walls of our churches.  Periodic religious excitements are part of our North American religious tradition, and we know the tradition.  WE GO SLACK, WE GET STIRRED UP, WE GO SLACK AGAIN.   But Trinitarian, incarnational reformation requires EMBODIMENT IN EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE; it requires that the teaching of the Word of God take shape in our lives, in our culture. I never tire of saying that theology comes out our fingertips — and what actually comes out our fingertips is our true theology.”
