Tradition and the glocal Christian

Thought for the day: You’re a glocal Christian if you’re informed by other traditions without loosing your sense of your own tradition.

Glocal Christianity is not about eclecticism, at least not in the sense of abandoning all tradition and mixing and matching randomly. But Glocal Christianity is not about denominationalism either, at least not in the sense of rejecting against all alien influences. It’s about learning to appreciate your own tradition, all the more deeply from having explored alternative traditions with their alternative perspectives. It’s not about loosing tradition. It’s not about museum tradition. It’s about living tradition.
