The challenge for the Church of the poor is to deepen the participation of the Christian base communities in the popular movements, and through these communities to develop all the liberating potential of the Central American people.

 Dylan Thomas
Once Dylan had decided to be a poet, impure and unsimple, and to do little else, he drafted and nearly completed most of the best poems in his first volume, 18 Poems, and nearly half of those in Twenty-five Poems, and The Map of Love.
Church, a poet himself, preferred Dylan's simpler efforts and criticised him for the Surrealism of his current and more obscure poems `caught up in the delirium of intellectual fashion of the moment´.
Richard Church may have been wrong in criticising Dylan's early poems as Surrealist, but he certainly seems to have put Dylan's prose on the right path.

To poets in a society that increasingly defined literature in terms of either narrow academic professionalism or market-driven commercial publishing, Kees's integrity and independence proved clarifying.

We are here assembled, to “banish and drive away from the Church all erroneous and strange doctrines, contrary to God’s Word;” to preserve and enforcea pure worship and godly discipline; and to diffuse, among all ranks of people, the knowledge of Christ, and the practice of true godliness.
Although the Episcopal Church was explicitly and repeatedly warned through each of the Anglican "instruments of unity" (including our own Presiding Bishop's unanimous statement along with the other primates) not to proceed, we proceeded.
Or you could say that the church was born with the resurrection--just as each baptism is a new birth by being joined to Christ's death and resurrection.
