New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The church is not a natural human community which resembles either the family or the state.  It is a supernatural heavenly community which is modelled on the community of divine persons within the Holy Trinity.  The order of the public ministry, together with the arrangements of all relationships in the church, has been designed by God himself to mirror the order of the Holy Trinity.  -- Dr. John Kleinig, *Women Pastors?* p. 222.
