“But a salvation whose very essence is that it is corporate and cosmic, the restoration of the broken harmony between all men and between man and God and between man and nature, must be communicated in a different way. It must be communicated in and by the actual development of a community which embodies — if only in foretaste — the restored harmony of which it speaks. A gospel of reconciliation can only be communicated by a reconciled community.”

-Lesslie Newbigin, The Household of God: Lectures on the Nature of the Church, 1953.
