I dream of a Church that is not the sole proprietor, but the servant of the truth, of a truth that we seek in all areas of life:
- a Church much more prophetic than diplomatic, one that doesn’t make peoples’ lives more difficult, but seeks to heal their lives, down to the root of their problems;
- a Church conscious of being at the service of something much greater than she, at the service of the Kingdom of God; and,
- a Church that doesn’t exist just to satisfy the people’s religious sentiment, but rather a Church at the service of a meaningful, fulfilling human life, with just and peaceful relationships, a Church that cares for nature.
