Reflection for the Week - December 7

Imagination is a fascinating topic of interest and debate in today’s world. The deeply significant issues of the real and the unreal have never been as evident as in our own cultural context. Discerning between fact and fantasy, objectivity and subjectivity in our post-modern setting, means we have to deal with a new blurring of categories, which may threaten older precision crafted paradigms and previously settled ways of thinking. As we increasingly find ourselves in a culture that prioritizes the visual over all else, images can tend to dominate the landscape of life. Engaging the challenges of post-modern thought, for better or worse, may now suggest that we have to reassess our understanding of God, ourselves, and the world.
