Global Perspective

I am finishing Newbigin’s The Gospel in a Pluralist Society and have much I want to blog on soon. One quote that stayed with me today that I wanted to share is:

“One fact that is certainly new is the acute sense that we are part of one global society more and more dependent on each other. The first photographs beamed back to earth from the moon gave us a vivid sense that our planet is not an inexhaustible area in which there will always be fresh frontiers to cross and free space to occupy, but a small and fragile spacecraft in which we are condemned to live together or else perish together.” (p. 157)
