an expansive image of God, a God who is big enough to embrace all expressions of faith that seek to carry out Christ’s call to love God and love our neighbors. This image of God understands the beauty in the diversity of creation rather than attempting to limit God’s revelation only to those who believe or practice as we do. Some among us will resist, holding on for dear life to old notions of church, and maybe even playing an important role in society, just as the Amish play for us today in their countercultural stance. However, like the media companies running scared today, they may find themselves overtaken by these new practices of faith, and pushed to the margins by those who would not be controlled. Our role is to mediate between the old and the new, neither jumping on the cultural carousel nor sticking our heads in the sand regarding the new realities of life in this new world.
