What church is about

"The church is intended as a concrete answer to the
prayer that laborers be sent forth to the harvest. The
company of Jesus is not people streaming to a shrine;
and it is not people making up an audience for a
speaker; it is laborers engaged in the harvesting task
of reaching their perplexed and seeking brethren with
something so vital that, if it is received, it will change
their lives." Elton Trueblood
