The Church and the Status Quo
Martin Luther King, Jr., called his fellow clergy members to make the church more relevant in society: “It is our job as ministers to bring the church back to the center of the human race. But we can only bring the church back to the center of the human race when we bring Christ back to the center of the church.” (Sermon notes, 1949-1950) Bring the church back to “the center of the human race” sounds very much like the project Jesus inaugurated. And it is not finished.
