An Eternal Conversation about Things That Matter 10-13-2017

Parker Palmer said “truth is an eternal conversation about things that matter.” The intent of my work is not to conclude the conversation about Jesus, but to keep it going in the most vital sense.

Teachers know that just as every cell has a wall, every subject has authentic boundary lines. Staying within those lines protect the sacred conversation. These parameters don’t confine us. They liberate us to plumb the depths and get to know our subject with greater and greater intimacy.

Every committed relationship has responsible boundaries, which allow the relationship to deepen and blossom. Conversation about Jesus also has parameters. When respected, these parameters draw us deeper into the mystery. The Alexandrian Mystics (Alexandrian Fathers) knew all the magic happens in the interplay between the Divinity and the humanity (The Jesus Paradox).

For more on the Jesus Paradox of the Alexandrian Mystics see my first book, Healing The Divide: Recovering Christianity’s Mystic Roots.
