Church and Society

From Linda Mercadante’s Belief without Borders: “…religious people need to remind themselves why religions are good for society. As Garret Keizer summarizes: “The virtues of organized religion include but are no means limited to the following: they give their adherents something solid against which to rebel; they allow one to see farther by standing on the shoulders of giants; they insist on the primacy of lived experience; they work against illusion and historical insularity; they point to the power of the collective and the merits of deep diversity; and they are capable of the kind of mobilization that can transform the world.”
