"The Church exists by mission, just as a fire exists by burning. Where there is no mission, there is no Church."
— Emil Bruner, The Word and the World (1931)

Great quote on mission and church. What is the exact source? I want to use it.

Pat, I love the quote too. Emil Brunner, The Word and the World, p. 108.
