I took yet another quiz (culled from another blog), this one based off of Avery Dulles’ Models of the Church. I tried pasting in my results but they looked atrocious (and I didn’t feel like messing with the HTML), so I’m cutting and pasting straight from the website:
You scored as Sacrament model.
Your model of the church is Sacrament. The church is the effective sign of the revelation that is the person of Jesus Christ. Christians are transformed by Christ and then become a beacon of Christ wherever they go. This model has a remarkable capacity for integrating other models of the church.
I studied this in college, took a course while working with the Diocese, and I’ve re-read Dulles’ book as well, and I resonate with the sacramental model – it was and continues to be my favorite model.
My next two models were Mystical Communion (78%) and Servant (72%), both of which I remember liking as well (but not as much as the sacramental model).
What can I say? I’m Catholic through and through! But more then that, I like seeing the church (each and every one of us an individual and all of us corporately) as a living sign and an efficacious symbol of the presence of God in our midst. It reminds me that we are called to be light for the world, salt for the earth, and leaven for the bread; that we are to light our candles instead of cursing the darkness; that we are called to herald the inbreaking of the reign of God to all the corners of the world.
Silly me – almost forgot: the quiz can be taken here. Enjoy! 🙂
Blessings & Peace,
