PROCLAIMING GOD'S GLORIOUS REIGN


God has a plan, and it involves the church, and it is not about church for church's sake. God's plan is about gathering as many people as possible into the Kingdom of God, and the church is God's goofy, ungainly, counterintuitive means to that end. The church, of all things, exists to point the way, to steer the outsider in, to save the lost, to proclaim God's glorious reign -- that more citizens may be naturalized.

-- James D. Berkley, First Presbyterian Church in Bellevue, Washington
