Encouraged by Paul’s entry on Prodigal Kiwi Blog: Colossian Targums I printed a copy of Brian Walsh’s Colossian Targums: Reading Paul in a Postmodern Context and was glad that I did so.
The second part, entitled “Targum #2 – Subversive Poetry in a Postmodern World:
Colossians 1.15-20”, was amazing. A couple of parts linked in with some cyberculture stuff I’ve been reading.
In the face of a disconnected world
where home is a domain in cyberspace
where neighbourhood is a chat room
where public space is a shopping mall
where information technology promises
a tuned in, reconnected world
all things hold together in Christ
the creation is a deeply personal cosmos
all cohering and interconnected in Jesus
Now I’m off to play board games with my three and a half year old daughter. Enough virtuality for today.
