Since moving back from Sydney I’ve been aware of how people talk about the Christian life. Some talk of it as a walk, some talk of it as growing in faith, but back here the most common description has been that the Christian life is a journey. Maybe it’s just my cynicism, but I get the feeling that this term is left very open, very broad, and has very little real substance.

Over the next week or so I plan to post a series of reflections of what a journey (of any sort) involves, and how these concepts might be applied to the Christian ‘journey’. This is with the view that we might sharpen our language, and help those ‘journey-ers’ who like the language but really have no idea what the Christian journey involves. Any thoughts you have on the metaphor would be welcome.
