Affirmative Orthodoxy

Allen_P-140x211Somehow we have to recapture the notion that
the Church isn’t primarily about running institutions or winning political debates.

It’s about reaching deep inside the human heart and stirring what’s best in it,
and then boldly going out into the world and
insisting that the better angels of our nature can prevail,
that cynicism and ego don’t have to be the last word
about the kind of culture we pass on to our children,
and that the Church is an ally in every positive stirring and hopeful current in that culture.

That’s a vision worth devoting one’s life to, and if that’s not affirmative orthodoxy, what is?

D. Scott Miller

Scott recently married the lovely Anne and together they have five adult young people and also grandparent three delightful kids (so, maybe he is just plain old!) Scott presently serves at Saint John the Evangelist in Columbia, MD as the director of youth and young adult ministry.
