In Church For The City

It’s not a matter of choosing between worship or mission; nor are we faced with a false dichotomy of church or world, cathedral or city. To the contrary, we worship for mission; we gather for sending; we center ourselves in the practices of the body of Christ for the sake of the world; we are reformed in the cathedral to undertake our image-bearing commission to reform the city. – James K. A. Smith, Imagining the Kingdom: How Worship Works, 154
