Reflection 10.9.17

10/09/2017

[Faith] is the perspective which enables human beings to recognize God’s actions in human history. Other persons could have been aware of the exodus of a small band of Hebrews from Egypt and their subsequent entering into the land of Canaan … but only those with the faith of Israel would know that those liberative events were God’s self-revelation.

~James Cone, from his book A Black Theology of Liberation

Our past knowledge and present encounter with God ground our confidence that the future will be both like and unlike the present — like the present in the encounter with God, and unlike it in the fullness of liberation as a reality.
