New Heart, New Spirit and New Person (tags)
Jesus calls us to a new language and a new mathematics. "The world will be changed when people speak as Jesus spoke, in a liberating not a religious way so people are shocked and drawn by its power" (Dietrich Bonhoeffer).
Against Despair (tags)
Faith and Bonhoeffer's distinction of faith and religion can keep us from despair. The human handshake can be a metaphor of God's strong hand. God keeps us from falling, not from stumbling. Parallel, plural worlds exist beyond fault-finding and fear-mongering.
Mission and Evangelization (tags)
God calls us to resistance and solidarity. The world exists in the light of grace. The eyes of the world must be opened to its possibilities. As the moon has no light in itself, the church does not exist for itself. God is not necessary but more than necessary.
Becoming a Child (tags)
Jesus' model of the child could be a new beginning in a world of cynicism, permanent wars and universal insecurity. The world loses its mystery and becomes a steam-roller when the grand delusion of self-righteousness is accepted as a natural law and the penultimate pretends to be ultimate.
