Unconcealed City on a Hill

Matthew 5:13-16 — What we have is too good to keep to ourselves. Worse, failure to share it would violate everything we value.

A couple of years ago when I tried to set up a more substantial website for Radix Fidem, it turned out to be too soon. Worse, it was way more than I could handle in the first place. I knew how to put a machine on the Net, but that wasn’t the issue.

We need someone with a vision and expertise to develop a full blown site, something that will serve as a more worthy point of contact than my little blog, or anything else I could come up with. I know this can be done far better than what I can do myself. Again, this is not a one-man show. If it were, it’s past time to quit and find something else to do.

If the heart-led way of Christian faith is worth anything at all, it needs to come to the world’s attention. I think all of us can sense that. What hampers us is the burden of centuries of doing things in other ways that simply do not translate well into virtual space. We need to stay away from any approach that won’t survive a transition to the Networked Civilization. At the same time, I am not the expert to decide how to do it. I know just enough to recognize that it’s possible, but not see how.

There’s nothing wrong with failing; there’s nothing wrong with trying things that won’t work if you have no idea how to go forward. I’ve done what I know to do; it’s time for someone else whose hands can go beyond my reach. Maybe one or more of you should be in charge of this, but it requires a sense of calling and a vision. Or perhaps it is someone we’ve not yet encountered.

Pray that the Lord grant us a networking apostle. Pray for the resources to put it together and make it happen. The core issue is building something that can’t be ignored, while not being pushy and compromising with morally false techniques.

Meanwhile, let’s all keep doing our part to spread this gospel.

    It would also be great, if not even necessary, to have a forum where we can each communicate one with the other. That way we could all share our experiences, thoughts and inspirations.

    I agree; the equivalent of an open conversation at a meeting place is something I’d like to see, regardless whether it’s a forum or something else.

    Given enough people involved, something is bound to happen. What that “happening” looks like, I’m not sure. Not very helpful, is it?

    Exactly. We have this one first hurdle that itself is ill-defined in terms of numbers. How many does it take to get that momentum going? On the one hand, a genuine spiritual visionary doesn’t look at hurdles that way. On the other hand, we as elders do little else; we have to make this stuff possible. I’m torn between the two roles right now; they are not easily integrated. Still, I’m pulled hard by both of them and I refuse to surrender the hope that our work will have a lasting effect for God’s glory.
