Unrelated

I'm starting a new project for myself. At this point, it's going to have two connection points on the web: a short form and a long form.

The short form is up and running: Unrelated:

It's mostly a list of things that are ideas themselves, or shards of ideas, or nascent ideas that I'm not going to work at all into trying to relate to each other. (Hence the name.)

The Long Form, if it happens, will be a place to link them all up in an essay form.

Where to comment? I.e. salt and light: maybe the point, then, is to reveal (and protect) the kingdom already there.

I'm not sure yet if I'm going to enable comments over there. I'd been thinking that the posts were going to be so minimalist that there wouldn't be much upon which to comment.

But that you want to comment makes me re-think it.

Re: your comment
I think that, from J.Ellul's perspective, Christians are The Presence of the Kingdom in themselves, which is why they are both salt and light. Which, as I think about it, coheres with Jesus' comments to people that "the Kingdom of God has come near" or "is near you". He said that when he was near them. :-) And since christians are, by definition, "in Christ," then where we are near, so is Christ and so is the Kingdom.

Alex said...

great stuff, macon!

looking at your site makes me want to take that trip to see you and kick around ellul, polanyi, torrances, and whatever other erudite things that you could think of that i would try to hang with you about...

S: Thanks, Sean! I'm not sure why the rss feed isn't working, but I bet it's (my) user error. I'll try to figure it out.

A: My offer still stands for you to come out. Come help me think!
