Faithful Presence

Sometimes the posture of Christians has been, generally speaking, one of two options. Either Christians run and flee from society and culture or fight and rail against all the things that Christians don’t like. Faithful presence, on the other hand, names the reality that God is present in the world and that he uses a people, faithful to his presence, to make himself concrete and real amid the world’s struggles and pain. When the church is this faithful presence, God’s kingdom becomes visible and the world is invited to join with God.
