A living tradition

September 6th, 2011 by isaac · No Comments

For a Christian tradition to come alive, we locate ourselves within cultures of worship that have become spaces where the dead can breathe—where, with every inhale they draw us into stories of past faithfulness, and with every exhale they free us to live in the present, refreshed and renewed with the same Holy Spirit that has always guided and sustained our church through the ages.

(I came up with this image as I was working on a short article on the Mennonite/Anabaptist tradition. I ended up cutting it, so I thought I’d post it here for safe-keeping)
