Newbigin: small congregations: subversion by undercover agents

extra credit if anyone guesses why I used this pic
" If I understand the teaching of the New Testament on this matter, I understand the role of the Christian as that of being neither a conservative nor an anarchist, but a subversive agent… We do not spend enough of our energies training undercover agents...

Even if it is a very small congregation, and perhaps even especially when it is a small congregation, it can thus become the growing point from which the subversion of the principalities and powers and the first shoots of a new creation can develop. “

 Lesslie Newbigin,
Truth to Tell: The Gospel as Public Truth p. 82; 87
