We will never recover the ministry of the "laity" as long as we consider them to be institutional maintenance men and women. Conversely, nearly all lay people are magnetically attracted to the ordained clergy and have become laicized as a result. We are drowning in our subjectivity and have abandoned the goal of objective exegesis. The church is all of God's people in ministry but we have loved our traditions to the point of idolatry. This is not a new doctrine but the repristination of the early church. Until the day I die I will seek to enlist people (mostly "lay" people) for Christ's mission on every continent.
