PQ #16 - Discussing "Divine Renovation" - Chapter One by PastoralQuotient published on 2017-08-05T16:05:23Z The identity crisis facing the church has left us confused and weak. The church is a movement, meant to go forth and bring the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ to all peoples. But instead, the church is often a tribe - closed in on itself, self-referential, even to the point of becoming "sick," according to Pope Francis. Are we fostering church cultures that maintain a status quo of complacent exclusivity, keeping Jesus all to ourselves? Or are we forming disciples and reaching the lost through clear and effective disciple-making processes? What is the path forward? Fr Anthony and Fr Charles dive deep into Chapter One of Fr Mallon's "Divine Renovation" to discuss these matters, using the text as a starting point for the conversations we need to be having if our local churches are to be faithful to the great commission and the gospel mandate to go forth and make disciples.
