Christianity East and West

A friend of mine sent me the hyperlink below. I thought the readers of this blog might be interested in it

Grant LeMarquand has given us a powerful reminder that the sexuality controversy so beloved by churches in America is only a small part of the true mission and problems faced by the Christian church. My favorite part of the article was point 3, where a Kenyan student reminded him that the true Christian mission holistically involved "both the 'spiritual' and the 'social'; mission was about helping people to have a personal relationship with Jesus and about justice for the poor." The false dichotomy that separates these two aspects in the Western Church must be eliminated.
