Berger: dialogue about faith?

Saturday, July 9, 2022
    He said to another man, “Follow me.”
    But the man replied, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.”
    Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”
    —Luke 9:59-60 (NIV)
    Ages of faith are not marked by “dialogue” but by proclamation.
    ... Peter L. Berger (1929-2017), Facing up to Modernity, Basic Books, 1977, p. 192 (see the book)
    See also Luke 9:59-60; Matt. 10:27; Acts 20:27; Rom. 10:17; Col. 4:3; Jas. 1:25; 1 Pet. 1:23; 4:6; 1 John 1:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, awaken all Your people to the proclamation of the Gospel.
