Time flies . . .

It's weird. It's not like I haven't had any thoughts in the last two weeks, but I just haven't had the drive to post anything. I'm at a point now where I have more questions than answers and more desire to listen than to comment. I know it will change, but right now that's where I am.

I heard a statment on Monday that has been rolling around in my head: "Never ask a fish what water is like." The point being that if someone is completely immersed and surrounded they can't really describe that in which they are immersed. So how do I address my own culture as I try to "become all things to all men?" How do I allow my culture to inform my ministry without making my ministry dependant on my culture? How much of the Bible story is "lost in translation" to our culture?

If you haven't had a thought in a few days, does that make you thoughtless?
