S 104 The Road to Growth Less Travelled: Spiritual Paths in a Missionary Church

In the face of declining church attendance, the call to mission can become nothing more than pressure to perform. Under this pressure, we are losing a quality our age most needs and depth.

How can we avoid become a restless, rootless church in a restless, rootless world? By engaging afresh in a contemplative spirituality which moves from anxiety to love, from coercion to community, and from a pre- occupation with church to a love for God and his world.
