The shape of things to come

Church and State, the education of the nation's children, the church's life and mission, the religious life all these in the early days of a new century and millennium are areas of accelerating change. Is God in the change, or are we witnessing the advancing tide of relentless secularisation?
Our contributors in this issue of
franciscan explore this question and find, in the discernible shape of things to come, grounds for the hope of which the anchor is a symbol used by the writer to the Hebrews. May our readers share this hope!
