Sing a New Song

Tell the old story with new words, sing the old song with new meaning, find a new interpretation of the old metaphor…  We are comforted by our traditions even as we refuse to be bound by them.  We honor the old words and carry them forward with us, even as we change what we mean when we say them.  Expressions of Christianity have been changing for two thousand years, and they will keep on changing.  Change is a sign of life.
