The saying, “we have all that we need to change the church and to change the world,” can be heard as a challenging statement: we are not where we should be. But it can also be taken as a hopeful statement: we are not where we could be. Either way, we can agree-all of the resources needed to transform ourselves and our churches are around us, but there are many things (fear, oppression, and so on) that limit our access to these resources. Whether the obstacles are personal or systemic, dealing with them is gut-wrenchingly hard work that often leaves us in situations where we feel exposed, uncertain, an ill-equipped. Yet, it is part of what it means to be disciples and so despite these mountains in our way we persevere; because God has indeed “created us for good works” and because we have what we need to continue what Jesus started long before the first Palm Sunday protest.
