what it means to be a christian in today's world is difficult to explain in a few words. i cannot do it justice. i find the source of my existence in Christ; i cannot possibly find it elsewhere. but this is an objective fact, not some merely subjective consideration. it is therefore incorrect to say that i find my existence in Christ. more properly, Christ has found me. i have recognized this fact.

one sometimes hears questions about how one might explore a christian life. my first advice is always to seek out a friendly episcopal church and speak to the clergy there. this is, of course hardly an infallible method. christian community is, however, all about other people, complete with their disastrous traits as well as their glorious traits.
