Reflection for the Week - September 26

Christians all too often become inoculated against the real. Plagued by inauthentic churches peddling illusions and the deception of unreal images that manifest themselves in misplaced expectations and extravagant regimes, which are given an illegitimate authority and unwarranted priority, Christians fade from the scene of being engaged by the real world. We have become all too clever at making it up as we go along, propagating reveries, ignoring science, and imagining life to be as it is not. There are many attempts, for a variety of reasons, to live in imaginary worlds of our own fabrication, when we should be living imagination from and to the world as it appears: vive l’imagination – a sign post to the real.
