Needed: a whole new way of life

Anthony B. Robinson is the senior pastor of Plymouth Congregational Church (UCC) in Seattle. Speaking of the changing role of Christian churches, he notes that "we are no longer the sole religious voice, nor the exclusive voice of conscience in the community. Ours is one voice among many. Increasingly, we seek to be an alternative in a society that is often destructive of human relationships and humane values, a society afflicted by a chronic low-grade nihilism that is masked but not healed by material affluence. Those seeking a church today need more than a committee assignment. They need and seek a whole new way of life. The church offers the possibility of transformation in light of the story of God's grace and the life and practices derived from that story."
