Recapturing the spirit of Reformation

The Very Rev Albert Bogle explains why it is important to deal with the results of the ‘cultural tsunami’ that has engulfed the landscape of the Church.

WE as a denomination could easily be sleepwalking into oblivion.

The temptation is to pretend all will be well, when in fact we are being urged by the Spirit to ‘Waken upon and strengthen the things that still remain – while we still have time!’ (Rev 3: 2).

A great cultural tsunami has turned the social and spiritual landscape of church life, certainly in the western world, on its edge. A whole generation of church ministers and elders are feeling they are reading maps that no longer relate to the terrain in which they find themselves as leaders. In the past, faith was passed from generation to generation. We are living in a time when the chain of memory has been broken. This kind of disruption brings with it fear and doubt. leading to a kind of spiritual isolation among churches and a denial of the reality they have to face.
