Abstract

The faithful practice of ministry in the church is rooted in the abiding claims of the Gospel. But that faithful practice is also in part shaped by and responsive to the particular social setting of the church. In these comments, I want to reflect on the practice of ministry which is increasingly squeezed between a greedy secularism through which we become brutalized, and reactive religious fearfulness that provides alternative grounds for the same brutalization. (I add as a footnote that a kind of uncommitted religious sensitivity without serious cost does not help us either, but that is not a part of this present discussion.) What is at issue in this squeeze play between greedy secularism and religious fearfulness is the integrity of ministry itself.
