Hope for the church in a discouraging time

This is the second link to which I draw your attention. Also by Sonja (see The rock supporting the church) this post speaks to me (and to many, I suppose) about finding hope and light as the church once again wrestles with balancing authority and credible witness to Jesus who came “to serve, rather than be served.” Again, I encourage you to read Sonja’s post (click the link at the top of this note).
