Reflection for the Week - June 4

Christians devote a tremendous amount of time and energy attempting to exorcise tension. In my view, this is a utopian misinterpretation of living spirituality and not the direction God has for us. To be in tension is to be in-between. And being in-between corresponds to the theological marker of the Kingdom of God, to life in the world, and to who we are as humans. Don’t try to escape tension. Embrace it! And go from there.
