Our founder is still with us

Many more people throughout history have begun radical, continued social movements. But one significant difference each time is this: none of their founders are still with them. The Church, God’s called and chosen people here on earth, is utterly unique for many reasons. Notably, it is the “only organisation in the world that exists solely for the benefit of its non-members” (Archbishop William Temple). And, more importantly, its – our – founder Jesus Christ is still with us. Always. To the end of the age.
