Our Death is Not the End! Yes, but…our loss is certain.

“THE CHURCH ALWAYS LAPSES INTO IDOLATRY WHEN  INSTITUTIONAL SACREDNESS IS BASED ON ITS HISTORICAL LEGACY TO THE DISREGARD OF ITS ABILITY TO CONFRONT PRESENT DAY CRISIS ISSUES AND SERVE HUMANKIND.”  -GILBERT

On the Black Church’s institutional maintenance and survival, Dr. Andrews rightly claims that balancing the pastoral or prophetic roles is the contemporary Black pastor’s greatest challenge.

Dale P. Andrews: Our Death is Not the End!

Excerpt from Faith and Leadership Interview:

“If we’re going to die, if we’re looking at facing death, then let us go out trying to be the church.

We still work at the institutional maintenance, but if we’re facing death, let us face death with faith that our death is not the end of our life. And let us go out dying by doing that justice-making out in the community, and we will be faithful in doing it and trusting in God’s faithfulness to work with us.

And if we die while we’re being faithful, our death is not the end of life.”
