on living in tension


Bring on the tension in new and challenging and beautiful and radical ways in 2012:

If Christian life is a matter of living in an unfinished drama, then the improvisatory discipleship to which we are called requires something of a double immersion. We must be immersed in the biblical story and we must be immersed in the world. Only through such double immersion will we have any ability to discern faithful improvisations from missteps and dead ends. Rooted in a biblical vision of life, being formed in our very identity and character by this narrative, we attempt (in fear and trembling) to discern a path ahead.

-Brian Walsh & Sylvia Keesmaat {Colossians Remixed}
