changes

Hearing a lecture
Wondering about changes
Community replaced by the individual
Personal ideas held above community ideals

The ethos of the world has changed
Diversity recognized and celebrated
Absolutes become more difficult
How do you find Truth within the range of opinion?

Reading the ministry of the past
Hearing the ministry of the present
Meditating on the words of the prophets of old
Seeking to experience Christ’s presence

The heart wonders how to find unity in spite of diversity
How does God embrace humanity?
How much language can be translated?
Is language choice ever vital?

The world changes around us
Do we adapt, or hold fast to our foundation?
Can we keep the past and the present?
Is there a way to be true to history and yet contemporary?

The sea of ideas is difficult to navigate
All answers have become heresy
