but not to be "of" it

Having learned from the past, I would hope we could strive to live faithfully in the world of today - an increasingly postmodern, postcolonial, post-Industrial, post-Christendom, and otherwise post-al world. Our goal should be to live fully "in" the world - incarnationally in it, missionally sent into it ... but not to be "of" it, as Jesus said.
