Another excellent article from First Things

I regularly read the "On the Square" blog from First Things magazine. It is written from a Roman Catholic perspective, but one that clearly has some resonance with the Kuyperian concept of engaging and redeeming culture. Today's post is especially worth reading. Here is a snippet:

"The Church is not merely a voluntary association of the spiritually like-minded catering to the indulgence of private sensibilities in one of Babylon's many enclaves of choice. The Church is the Body of Christ through time proposing to the world the new creation inaugurated in his cross and resurrection and promised return. Whether against, above, in paradox, or transforming, she is always critically engaged—never surrendering to the cultural captivity that is the delusion of 'Christ without culture.'"
