I want to have a conversation with you.
The river of conversation takes us to the open places where, over time, it has carved the rock for us – chipping away the ancient cliff, leaving it smooth and beautiful. Most people stop in the open places to enjoy the sun and dive from the cliffs into the soft-flowing water where it is comfortable. However, conversation also takes us down river to the dangerous places: to the jungle where you have to duck for the low branches, to the rapids which create waters so furious they can suck you under and refuse to spit you out, even to the edge of the cliff where the flow has nowhere else to go but over, breaking us on the jagged stones at the bottom and bringing us back together for a new course.
I see conversation taking us to a better understanding of what it means to be human, what it means to be The Church. It is taking me to the dangerous places. I’m not content in the open places. I long to see what lies behind the dense forest around the bend.
I created this blog to join the conversation – to get on the river and go to dangerous places and to find the hidden open places beyond them.
