On Not Being of the World: Our Rhetoric Can Discourage Living More Christ-Like Lives

I think we work so hard not to be of the world that we forget to be fully in the world - which is where the Gospel is found, in the purest sense.

Jesus certainly lived fully in the world, and our rhetoric too often discourages that sort of involvement.

Being in the world but not of the world is hard. If we truly want to emulate Christ, it's not enough to just visit the less active. We need to help the very peripheries of society: the addict, the refugee, etc. I'm certainly not there yet.
