How to change and stay the same

" a church can lose its soul by being so progressive that it fails to remain what it is in all the change, or by being so conservative in remaining unchanged that it does not become anew what it ought to be"
Hans Kung "On Being a Christian" pp35

This book is beautiful (so far). It has one of the most compelling introduction I have ever read.
