Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Fair Warning

a warning label for Christianity created by the Rev. Frank Logue
The 19th century Danish Philosopher Søren Kierkegaard wrote
I wonder if a man handing another man an extremely sharp, polished, two-edged instrument would hand it over with air, gestures, and expression of one delivering a bouquet of flowers? Would not this be madness? What does one do, then? Convinced of the excellence of the dangerous instrument, one recommends it unreservedly, to be sure, but in such as way that one warns against it.
As someone very interested in the renewing of Christianity, Kierkegaard was allergic to weaker expressions of faith and wanted his fellow Christians to understand how dangerous living into our faith in Jesus can and should be. Today's sermon, Finding Your Cross: The Warning Label Sermon is online.
