Nostalgia? Fear? What is Our True Place in the Moment?

May 25, 2010

Lesslie Newbigin:

The real question is: What is God doing in these tremendous events of our time?  How are we to understand them and interpret them to others?  Nostalgia for the past and fear for the future are equally out of place for the Christian.  He is required, in the situation in which God places him, to understand the signs of the times in the light of the reality of God’s present and coming kingdom, and to give his witness faithfully about the purpose of God for all men.
