This is stunning…..
Subversive Preaching in a Postmodern World – A Targum based on Colossians 1:15-20 by Brian J Walsh
In an image-saturated world,
a world of ubiquitous corporate logos
permeating your consciousness,
a world of dehydrated and captive imaginations
in which we are too numbed, satiated and co-opted,
to be able to dream of life otherwise.
A world in which the empire of global economic affluence
has achieved the monopoloy of our imaginations;
in this world,
Christ is the image of the invisible God.
In this world,
driven by images with a vengeance,
Christ is the image par excellence;
the image above all other images,
the image that is not a facade,
the image that is not trying to sell you anything,
the image that refuses to co-opt you.
