Quote of the day: the call on the Church

"The church exists for the kingdom of heaven, and God alone knows the elect, so the meaning of history lies not in the flux of outward events, but in the hidden drama of sin and redemption." - Augustin, The City of God.
Professor Carter, on the model of Christ transforming culture:
"It's often the case that when we set out to transform culture we're actually being transformed by it. But in church history often it's when the church just does what it's supposed to do that it inadvertantly ends up transforming culture as a side-effect." [White Horse Inn 18/01/09]
