"The Communion of Saints"

          "Church has become a place we go rather than a community to which we belong.  Yet the truth is that there is no such thing as private Christianity – Christianity without the active communion of saints . . . A privatized faith weakens the church within and without, loosening the bonds of true Christian community and hindering the church’s witness to the world."

                                Philip G. Ryken, The Communion of Saints, pp. vii-viii
