Such a Time as This

The question I have had to face in myown ministry is this: Will I live the time God has given me? Or will I live a time I would prefer to have? Postmodern culture is my here and now. I will take the church back to the cyberage, or will perish in the attempt. I live my life between two metaphors: (1) the pioneer who has arrows shot in his back, and (2) the slow buffalo always gets shot. I am constantly aware that the difference between a leader and a martyr is about three paces. -- Postmodern Pilgrims, p 47
