I’ve become passionate about how the Christian world view provides the best answer to the question, “What is a person?”  or “What does it mean to be fully human?”   Jesus is called the Second Adam and the implications are enormous.  For example, our proclaiming of the Good News needs to start with Creation and our being in the image of God.  Then our fallen and broken selves can point to Christ as the one who redeems our humanity.  Some of this will be “fleshed out” (no pun intended) in our 2009-10  series on the Letter to the Romans.  Here’s an example of the kind of vital reminders I keep coming across.  It is from Image Journal – a publication committed to the intersection of Art, Faith, and Mystery.  Let me encourage you to read this blog post from the editor.  Not an easy read, but worth the effort.  It begins with a quote that is in the title of this post.  Click here to read.
