Changed & Converted

Posted: January 24, 2013 by doulos tou Theou in Apologetics and Evangelism, Christianity, Discipleship

“It is a growing conviction of mine that no parish can fulfill its true function unless there is at the very center of its leadership life a small community of quietly fanatic, changed and truly converted Christians. The trouble with most parishes is that nobody, including the pastor, is really greatly changed… We do not want ordinary men. Ordinary men cannot win the brutally pagan life of a city like New York for Christ. We want quiet fanatics.”

– John Heuss, Our Christian Vocation (Greenwich, 1955), pages 15-16.

    O, how I love changed, converted, fanatically faithful men and women! That’s why I love worshiping at Trinity…that’s why I love our Pastors and lay leaders…that’s why I love my Trinitarian friends. I thank God daily for.the.privilege of belonging to His Body with all of you!
