Spiritual Rhythms of Life for Today

Engaging a post-trust culture means meeting people where they are in their suspicions and re-directing them to an ontology of revised trust. Empty appeals made to institutions, politics, or churches, no longer has traction, whereas personal encounter and investment carry significant weight. Sacrificing time and energy therefore should be a mark of Christian love and charity towards others. Hammering out together the validity, or lack thereof, concerning plausible explanations of reality has to take place one step at a time. There are no fast and easy solutions to complex issues. Starting with being human and living in the world is as good a place as any to begin the journey, which leads to Creator and Christ.
