Why Institutions Matter

While some institutions are bureaucracies of the worst sort, vibrant institutions are crucial to sustaining meaning and purpose in our lives and in the world. Christian awareness of sin should make us wary of non-institutional, private quests for personal fulfillment, and aware of our need for the abiding persistence of institutions, such as the Church, which sustain the spiritual practices that can lead us toward God-given fulfillment. This compelling essay invites readers to reflect on the important role institutions play in human life and God’s divine drama.
