Finding New Words

Finding new words to express ancient wisdom is an essential part of progressive Christianity.  Not only does such an effort put the fundamental ideas into modern language, but the very act of searching for the new words is part of coming to understand what you believe and how you want to share it with others.  Find a balance between the power of repeating old words, with all their history and associations for you, and the power of finding new words, with all the fresh understandings they can bring.
