Captain Sacrament to Save the Day
I think Potter really is on to something here:
The world is not crying out for more doctrinal statements or prophetic pronouncements. It is crying out for prophetic lives. This goal of learning to love one another deeply is itself starkly countercultural both in terms of the world and the consumer-driven, low-commitment religious culture prevalent in post-Christian North America. It is really doing this – dedicating our lives to God and one another out of obedience to the Gospel – in the midst of the world that will introduce others to the transformative power of Jesus Christ. Christians can not longer look for “perfect” friends or communities in selfish and neurotic attempts to meet our own needs.

(emphasis me)
