Augustine on dual citizenship

Tim Keller on when churches grow best:

“We believe that, paradoxically, churches grow best not when they aim at church growth as much as when they serve the peace/shalom of the whole city. Saint Augustine believed that citizenship in the City of God made us the very best citizens of the human city”. (Redeemer Church Planting Manual)
