The Cosmology of Marriage
For all missionally committed orthodox Christians in the West, Rod Dreher has written the money quote of the decade:
They are fighting the culture war moralistically, not cosmologically. They have not only lost the culture, but unless they understand the nature of the fight and change their strategy to fight cosmologically, within a few generations they may also lose their religion.

What Dreher has written is nothing less than one of the most succinct and perceptive descriptions of American culture as well as important clues to the apologetic behind Truro's missionary strategy. To "fight cosmologically" requires a way of reading scripture that puts a premium on how we live as "male and female in his image." This embodied scriptural community is precisely what we are building through our alliance with Don Renzo Bonetti and St Joseph of Bovolone, Italy.
