Spirit-constructed community …

How is it we become the community of faith that reflects the reality of the Kingdom of God? Could it be we find it in the effective work of the Spirit of God through the Scriptures?

Through the act of appropriating the biblical texts, the Spirit creates the community that seeks to live the paradigmatic narrative of the Bible, which focuses on the story of Jesus. To this end, we read the various texts in the light of the whole of the biblical message, listening for the Spirit’s voice guiding us as we seek to be the Spirit-constructed community of faith in the contemporary context. Theology serves this hermeneoutical process in that it assists us in seeing the texts as the theological documents they are, that is, in reading them as scripture. (Beyond Foundationalismp.87)
