"You and I happen to have been born at an edge, at a time of high tectonic activity in history--the end of one age and the beginning of another. Yesterday's maps are already outdated, and today's soon will be, too. But right about now, some of us are wishing we could go back to the old world. We love our old maps and wish the world still matched them.
And if we have a new world, we will need a new church. We won't need a new religion per se, we will need a new framework for our theology. Not a new Spirit, but a new spirituality. Not a new Christ, but a new Christian. Not a new denomination, but a new kind of church in every denomination."
Brian McLaren, Church on the Other Side, pgs. 12-14 (1998)
