Building Bridges Sums Up Christianity kiwiconnexion practical theology
What is Christianity meant to be?
That’s an easy question but how hard it is to give a sensible answer.
We all know that Christianity is so diverse and sometimes has given itself very bad publicity.
Will there every be a simple answer again? I think so but sometimes it’s much easier
to communicate with images. Maybe Christianity is all about building bridges.
About opening up roads and borders and possibilities. About seeing yourself in the stranger coming
from the other side of the river. It’s not easy building a bridge, ancient or
modern. But once done, once the goal is achieved,
how much better life is for everyone. The poet T S Eliot said,
The end of all our explorations will be to come back to where we began
and discover the place for the first time. Maybe that what Christianity is all about.
Building bridges to others and by so doing finding out who we are.
