Reading Gutierrez

I recently got a copy of the classic: 'a theology of liberation' by Gustavo Gutierrez. I last read it before we 1st went to Latin America. Now having been there and heading back for a visit, it seems good to read it again.

Here's a great quote on the community nature of working out both salvation and calling:
"people are called to meet the Lord insofar as they constitute a community, a people. It is a question not so much of vocation to salvation as a convocation. " p71 SCM trans.

I will keep musing on that one for sometime.
