Celestial Lands The Religious Crossroads of Politics, Power, and Theology

David Baumbaugh

“We have not been called into being in order to take in each other’s emotional laundry. We have not been called into being to serve ourselves, to enrich our interior lives, to justify our narrow vision…The purpose of the church is the salvation of the world. The purpose of its ministry, lay and clergy, is to enlist people in a vision which lifts them out of dumb fascination with themselves as part of an ongoing venture, responsible to generations past and to generations yet to come for building a world of justice and peace, of mercy and hope.”  — Rev. David Baumbaugh
