In pursuit of a fresh perspective
The February edition of Journey is available to read and download.
A new year gives you the chance to look at things a bit differently.
Did you stick to your New Year’s resolution, making you experience the world through a different routine? Perhaps you made a new friend over the Christmas break, which has helped you look at things from their point of view. Maybe you attended a gathering or conference in the New Year which has reframed things for you.
A fresh perspective can change everything; it can turn a chore into something enjoyable and can make previously impossible tasks achievable. That’s why it’s so important to do things that get you out of your own head for a while, like reading fiction or talking to those with whom you disagree—it gives you a new perspective on the world.
It’s my hope that Journey continues to bring a fresh point of view. This month we talk to some young adults who attended the last year in Sydney about their perspective on the Uniting Church (page six).
We also talk to some people who have studied theology to find out how that new perspective changed their faith (page 12). Did you go to theological college? How did it change your outlook?
I’m looking forward to what will come this year and I hope you will be part of it too. Don’t forget that Journey accepts letters of up to 150 words for publication—join in! The full submission guidelines are on journeyonline.com.au
Keep it fresh.
