The Transience of Religion

December 22, 2013

Merry Christmas

Whatever we may think of the controversial bishop, I couldn’t help but agree with these words:

Christianity is a journey through Christ into the mystery of God. If we get to that goal, we will have left Christianity behind, not because it was wrong, but because God transcends the limits of every religious system. (John Shelby Spong)

Christ himself said he was the way, the door, therefore a passage into something. May we all keep our eyes on that goal, and grow past the tribal aspects of religion. Christmas was the start of a new day, the passing away of an outdated mode of understanding and relating to God. May this Christmas grant us all to keep on moving along. Love is the way, as well as the destination.

Merry Christmas!
