Today is the day of another synchroblog when a bunch of people from quite different backgrounds, ministries and church contexts share their thoughts about a specific topic.
This time it’s about a Christian approach to Alternate States of Consciousness. I’m sitting this one out, mainly because I’m not sure I have anything worthwhile to contribute but also because I’m already multiplexing my life to the max at the moment and this is the thing that had to go.
The little I would say is that we need people who can engage with issues like this and examine them from within a Christian worldview. So if you haven’t come across this amazing bunch of people I recommend that you take a peek at what they have to say. You may not always agree, but it will certainly get you thinking.
