It Takes a Church to Raise a Christian

More than anytime before us, an American today believes 'I must write the script of my own life'. The thought that such a script must be subordinated to the grand narrative of the Bible is a foreign one. Still more alarming is the idea that this surrender of our personal story to God's story must be mediated by a community of fallen people we frankly don't want getting in our way and meddling with our own hopes and dreams.
