God’s Pilgrim People

Recently stumbled upon this quote South African theologian David Bosch.

“The Church is viewed as the people of God and by implication then, as a pilgrim church…It is ek-klesia, “called out” of the world, and sent back into the world. Foreigness is an element of its constitution.

God’s pilgrim people need only two things: support for the road, and a destination at the end of it.”

About mjbutterworth

I love drinking/making coffee, making/listening to music, riding bicycles, and reading about theology. I also like blogs that talk about those things. Most of all, I love Jesus because his gospel has changed my life.
