Fears and the Christians in Antioch
I don't have a favourite film anymore.
But I'm realizing I don't like when fear is used for dramatic tension. Generally.
I had this nice moment the other day.
I overheard a conversation rising up from the street below our apartment. "They weren't called anything," a male voice said. "'Hippy' was just what they got called by people later. But there was a time when the hippy scene wasn't anything. It was just happening."
As a Christian I remember thinking about this time before in the history of Christianity -from the death of Jesus 'till "they were first called Christians in Antioch" (Acts 11). Before Antioch they just were what they were. It was just happening.
What's my point? I dunno. Something.
