contribution through difference

January 14, 2009

Every nation has a peculiar contribution to make to the interpretation of Christianity. The Son of man is too great to be expressed by any one portion of humanity. Those that differ from us most will probably contribute most to our expression of Christianity.” — E. Stanley Jones (once again, 80 years ago) in The Christ of the Indian Road

This quote wraps up a prominent theme in my own Christian journey over the last few years. With technology shrinking our globe, there is more potential for learning from those who are different from us than ever before. And more potential to guard and protect ourselves from the “threats” of those not like us. May we choose the former.
