The longing for holiness is not about wanting to be 'holier than thou'. It is about wanting the love of God to permeate all of our life, and for that love to be shown through our lives to other people.

Politics

Church should build bridges with political institutions through organizing ecumenical delegations to the party conferences.

Views
