The Church in its Profoundest Expression…

“The church in its profoundest expression is the gathering of a people who are able to sustain one another through the inevitable tragedies of our lives.  They are able to do so beause they have been formed by a narrative, constantly reenacted through the sharing of a meal, that claims nothing less than that God has taken the tragic character of our existence into his very life.” (Hauerwas, Community of Character, 108)
