So I have been insanely busy with work (heading overseas for two weeks) and moving (I bought a house) that I have not updated Trinitarianmission in some time. I am sorry. Once life settles down a little (I.E. I have finished moving), I hope to continue Mission Monday’s as well as chronicle my move into the inner city of Atlanta.
In the mean time, check out my other blog here for some current thoughts I have been having.
Christianity is not a philosophy that can be learned separate from those who embody it. If the truth that is Christ were a truth that could be known “in principle’ then we would not need apostles. But the way the gospel is known is by one person being for another person the story of Christ. Jesus summons the disciples to him, and, so summoned, they become for us the witnesses who make it possible for us to be messengers of the kingdom. The disciples are not impressive people, but then, nether are we. Their mission, as well as our own, is not to call attention to ourselves but to Jesus and the kingdom.
