From Comment, a publication of the Massachusetts Bible Society, Summer 1989
"The question for me is whether we know what we are about in our synagogues and churches? I hope so. It's nothing less than opening the Book we too often take for granted and hearing again the stories of faith which set forth a vision of a new realm which calls us to walk the second mile; consider the good of others in both the public and private spheres; minister to the imprisoned; feed the hungry; take up a cross in order to follow; wash one another's feet; share the burdens; discover blessedness in seeking after righteousness and in doing justice.
"Radical? you bet. That is if we let it speak to us in all of its power."
By Dr. Donald A. Wells, executive director, Massachusetts Bible society.
