Here is plenty to think on once again.
When I see two dimensions described I have a habit of looking for a third. This is because we have a triune God. Artists talk about the rule of threes- or thirds when they arrange a composition or mix paints. Or the created order reflects its maker in a pattern of threes- the states solid-liquid gas for example.
I am wondering if there might be a third type to complement outsider, insider poles: that of bridge, portal or translator maybe; someone who unifies or transitions between the two?

Hi Jonny

just catching up on this really fascinating set of posts. it occurs to me that one theme running through it all is fear. the power fear holds to oppose almost everything you have been considering is huge and usually invisible to us (or me anyway!) until later. i'd love to know your thoughts on how facing our fears and living free of them is part of the story of emerging newness.

i guess for me a big part of facing fear is remembering that whatever the dissent, innovation, new connection, darkness etc i am facing - the Spirit is already there and wants to guide me through it all. any thoughts on this - or resources you've found helpful?
