In the last few weeks, I have been thinking about the relationship between the abstract and the concrete. Both are necessary. Hearing versus living through a story Hearing about a story, it sometimes seems unbelievable. We would never take part in human sacrifices of the Aztecs. We could never sit and watch Roman Gladiator plays because of their brutality. Something could never happen to us. It seems too absurd, or farfetched.
Thanks for the post.
Truth is someone whom we build a relationship with. It makes us feel secure and safe. A life without knowing Truth in a relational way, is like living in a confusing maze.
Have people tried using a new reading app called CommonPlace? I assume everyone here is an erudite reader and the app is light years better than Goodreads. It enables readers to save their favorite quotes and annotations to then post to a twitter / reddit style architecture by which you can follow friends and family and join groups (bible studies, book clubs, etc). Below is a link if people want to check it out.
Thought I would share, cheers.!
