Reflection for the Week - July 5

Engaging a post-trust culture means facing my valid and invalid suspicions and trying to re-direct them, where necessary, to an ontology of hermeneutical trust. Arrogant appeals made to institutions, politics, or churches, no longer has traction, whereas personal encounter and investment as oneself as another carries significant weight. Hammering out together the cogency, or lack thereof, concerning plausible explanations of reality has to take place one step at a time. There are no fast and easy solutions to complex issues. Starting with being human and living in the world is likely to be as good a place as any to begin the journey towards transformation.
