Repeating Ourselves

Some of the emerging Church conversation, it seems, is like this picture a good friend sent me. We want to go places, but we keep coming back to many of the same ideas that have kept us through the ages – hold to the riches of the past, walk forward into your present and future, and return as needed.

And yet, we trust that we’ll make more progress than our little friend here.

As a favorite quote says, “The art of travel is not in seeing new places, but rather in seeing old places with new eyes.”
