Wonder in an age of Cynicism
At the core of authentic Christian life is wonder. A careful reading of the gospels shows that astonishment and amazement and raw bewilderment are at the pulse of the invasion of Jesus into human life. He opens us to a world with windows. Our age increasingly is a world without windows: here we entertain ourselves to death; we are distracted from distraction by distraction (T.S. Eliot). And we have Twitter. Our godly imaginations have shriveled in an age of cynicism. We are starved for godly wonder. As we explore the Word, how does God re-weave the heart to become once more astonished?
