“One of the questions that is being asked and will be asked over and over again is that of the authenticity of the church. Nationalism, ethnicism, and political ideologies all rise up to ask the same question- ‘Is the church genuine?’ In the context of real-life concerns, human suffering, isolation, hunger, displacement, loss of franchise and basic freedoms, they may also be asking, ‘Where is the church?'”
