Awakenings

 
Metanoia is a word worth learning. The Greek means literally “change your understanding” or “think differently.” In our modern parlance we might say, “Awaken!” Unfortunately, when the New Testament was translated from Greek into English, metanoia came out as “repent.” A perfectly legitimate translation, but certainly not the only one. It helped to send Western Christianity down a rabbit hole of preoccupation with sin, which we have been a long time recovering from.
