What's the gospel in seven words? We asked theologians, pastors and others both to answer this question and to
expand on this in a few sentences. To see all the responses together as they're posted, bookmark this page. Add your own version here. --Ed.

We are The Church of
Infinite Chances, where every sinner is a saint and vice versa. "Sinners
welcome," reads the banner on my church. Or as Blake said: "We're
put on earth a little space to learn to bear the beams of love." Also, I
would add, to reflect them. Without a Christos-centered worship of the
crucified and resurrected Jesus, I find this impossible.
