Reflection for the Week - June 5

God & Imagination

Imagination, I’d wager, plays a central role in our ability to participate in the Christian story. Knowing and believing in the revealing God is a possible reality for us in and through imagination, which is an active agent of these realizations. Any attempt to leave imagination out of the configuration of knowledge and belief is similar to trying to push water uphill. Authentic imagination, therefore, relates to the way things are: it is one of the dynamic elixir’s of our existence; a potential pathway to the discovery of truth, wherever it can be found.
