LETTERS

‘Radical’ Church

Radicalism and even revolution seem to be in the air according to the June issue of Life and Work. For instance Tim Bell on the Letters page suggests that, in our Church “… not everyone should be expected to conform to a consensus; we need boundary pushers, critics and satirists… We need people who are prepared to take risks and be enterprising....”

In the review of Walter Brueggemann’s book, Interrupting Silence: God’s Command To Speak Out, the author of the book is quoted as saying… “remaining silent allows the powerful to retain control” and he suggests readers ask themselves “whether they personally need to end the silence and act for justice.”

Then the Very Rev Albert Bogle in his article suggests that it is time for elders and members of congregations “to think again, to become… mavericks, to begin to agitate for change..... radical change....[to] start the local revolutions.”
