This web log is a place to conduct a conversation on the elusive nature or features of listening to and following God’s will. That is, it is concerned with the “how and why” of seeing with Eyes of Faith. Besides the “how and why” it is also about the “what.” What does one see in the world through Eyes of Faith? This component of the weblog is, alas, likely to be the preponderant content for some time. Seeing with eyes of faith is ultimately about viewing the world as a creature of a personal God.
Marshall McLuhan wrote prophetically about the increasing tribalism of the global village as electronic media reduced or even erased the distances of time and space between individuals and social groupings. These distances are inevitably replaced by hardening cultural and mythical boundaries that leaders must sometimes try to cross to ensure long term survival or to connect people with God's salvific grace. In a rather personal reflection, I have attempted to grapple with this important area in a separate page on this blog: Marshall McLuhan and the Challenges of Tribalism in the Global Village.
