Perhaps Christians should work harder toward cultivating little establishments of the kingdom that point to our true home. If the world despises a notorious sinner, the church will instead love her. If the world cuts off aid to the poor and the suffering, the church will offer food and healing. That at least is the vision of the church in the New Testament: a colony of heaven in a hostile word.
