Beautiful words, a sad truth

From the article John Sentamu sworn in as Archbishop of York in the Times Online, dated November 30, 2005:

He called on the Church of England to revive its spirit of “wonder” and “adoration” and to rediscover the transforming power of the Gospel.”The scandal of the church is that the Christ-event is no longer life-changing, it has become life-enhancing. We’ve lost the power and joy that makes real disciples, and we’ve become consumers of religion and not disciples of Jesus Christ.”

Thanks to Andrew Jones for the link.
