Jon at ASBOJesus so often manages to identify the big issues around us and point a million watt light at them. Here he has so succinctly juxtaposed the society in which we live and the way our world works with the ancient symbols of faith.
As a Church we are at a fascinating point in history. In the last fifty years the world has changed drastically. We are experiencing the beginnings of a paradigm shift. The world is changing. Technology is altering the way in which people interact with each other. We are becoming more consumer oriented as a society. People work out quickly what is of worth to them and decide whether to buy into it or not within a relatively short period of time.
As we are working out how we can follow the way and speak authentically in the modern world it is important that we don’t mimic the world at the expense of the faith.
