Spiritual Rhythms of Life for Today

Forecasts of the demise of Christianity in the West are pervasive, and for my part, I think largely accurate. There are many changes needed to correct this trajectory, but one important shift that is essential is for Christians to wake up to the importance of having a thoughtful faith. Thinking is not poison and ideas are important to wrestle with in a credible manner, whether we are engaging another Christian or not. A respectful listening to and learning from others will enhance our integrity, while not necessarily meaning that we have to agree with conclusions that are not fitting with truth and love. Escapism and ignorance are not representative of the living God, who calls us to connect with the world and others for their own sakes, and to participate in shinning light into dark places and to bringing sufficient explanations into the theater of death.
