James’s course is teaching us to become used to hearing God through the Son. He tells us that ‘God is communicating as someone who appeared in the middle of history but who is also somehow involved in the creation of the world.’ And, that being truly Christian is to find oneself on the inside of a marvellous project, an act of divine communication that is calling us to a new way of being. In the Bible God communicates in difference ways, speaking in person, or as a voice speaking to Abraham, through the Prophets and as an angel in a dream and of course through the Son. James also tells us that this ‘odd beginning’ is basic anthropology in that we ‘learn by being inducted into a set of practices over time such that we find ourselves knowing from within how they work’ as we find ourselves becoming something or someone we scarcely knew before. Tony I think that this act of communication will change your life!
