New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Like man himself, the church exists only historically and concretely. And the individual Christian's existence can never be abstracted from the concrete, historical givenness of the church. It is in this given, corporate actuality of the one body of Christ that the life and love of the triune God flows through each and all of the body's members. -- Richard Jungkuntz *The Gospel of Baptism* p. 95
