Understanding the Church and faith in public life


One my favourite journals/magazines is Comment by Cardus.  It is available in hard copy or iPad.  For a taste of it's content, try these two articles by Jamie Smith, here and here. They explore the nature of faith in public life and and understanding of what the church is supposed to be.  To often visions for Church are whether they are 'working' for people around their schedules and meeting their needs. Jamie Smith provides a more exciting vision for the nature of the Church in everyday and public life.
