Thursday Thoughts - December 12

When our faith in God configuration is rigid and brittle, we’re going to have problems. As new ideas surface and gain traction, particularly with respect to the evolutionary natural world informer, an inflexible paradigm will produce fear rather than engagement. Dogmatic formulations of God, self, other, and world are unsustainable and will eventually collapse. Meta-narrative – a totalizing story that explains everything is an illusion. Christians don’t want to embrace illusions, but be open to a real world that may challenge us to revise our views and then to hold them with a spirit of flexibility and exploration.
