Happy New Year

Wright from his new book, Paul: In Fresh Perspective: “The church must live as a sign of the kingdom yet to come, but since that kingdom is characterized by justice, peace and joy in the Spirit (Romans 14:17), it cannot be inaugurated in the present by violence and hatred.”… May this year witness Jesus’ people inaugurating his kingdom in justice, peace and joy.

I wanted to welcome the New Year with a quote by N.T. Wright from his new book, Paul: In Fresh Perspective:

“The church must live as a sign of the kingdom yet to come, but since that kingdom is characterized by justice, peace and joy in the Spirit (Romans 14:17), it cannot be inaugurated in the present by violence and hatred.”

Happy 2006! May this year witness Jesus’ people inaugurating his kingdom in justice, peace and joy.
