Those Pearly Gates


In John’s vision, the Holy City famously has ‘pearly gates’. Doug Gay explores the politics of going to church or not, protests that a churchless faith is reactionary and argues that for us, as for Jesus, the church is a pearl of great price.

Doug Gay is an ordained United Reformed Church minister studying for a PhD in Practical Theology. Now living back in South West Scotland with hi family, he was a founder of the Late, Late Service in Glasgow.
