Romans 8:1-11

Jeff & Susan McSwain

Jeff & Susan are the founders of Reality Ministries, a community-based non-profit that offers a variety of opportunities for participants to work, play, learn and grow together. RM’s mission is to create opportunities for teens and adults with and without developmental disabilities to experience belonging, kinship and life-changing Reality of Christ’s love. The Reality Center is a place where we strive to reflect God’s heart for humanity, a place with no margins where everyone is accepted, valued and celebrated.

“The real (hu)man is not an object either for contempt or for deification, but an object of the love of God.” -Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Ethics

“But man has become naturalized in unnatural sin. But it isn’t natural; accustomed, but not natural. A pastor told me that he had ridden his bicycle so long with crooked handbars that when somebody straightened them he fell off. He was naturalized in the unnatural.” -E. Stanley Jones, The Unshakable Kingdom and The Unchanging Person

“Baptism is supposed to have drowned the old Adam, and a joke that Barth liked to make is, ‘It turns out the rascal can swim.’ There’s a certain sense in which Adam is drowned in baptism, but in the time between the times, Adam is trying to pull us back under, and it’s a matter of hiddenness and tension that sin and grace exist in us in an ambiguous and complicated way until that final resolution.” -George Hunsinger quoting Karl Barth
