Local Imagination?

Local Imagination?


As the Summer fair season begins I found this reflection helpful…..

Jesus often compared the Kingdom to a very small thing that has universal effect – yeast working through a batch of dough, for instance. As such, the quantity serves the quality – you need enough yeast to make the whole loaf rise, but not too much or it overflows and can fall flat. Parish life was never just about numbers, it was about pursuing all that makes for peace and builds up our common life.

 Churches must recover a local imagination, of the sort where salvation began with the wangling of a welly, or where you root through a pile of musty jumble only to tug at the hem of your dreams. (page 27)
