About the Author
Discovery is not about coming up with something new. To “dis|cover” something is
to find something already there, but hidden from view by ignorance,
obstruction or distance. When Columbus “discovered” the Americas
he didn’t make them or invent them, he simply went further than the
people he knew were willing to go. Of course, there were other people
there already so it’s arguable whether he actually “discovered”
anything. He was just one of the first people from the “known
world” to venture that far. The same holds true with the church
A Cardboard Astronaut is not looking for some new
truth(s) he or she is looking for truth that has been obscured by
ignorance, obstruction or distance. When we push the boundaries it is
for the sake of the Church not to forsake it.
Maybe you’re a
Cardboard Astronaut. If so, be aware that you are both admired and
scorned by the people around you. Take the risk to move the kingdom
of God forward. Be informed so that your resistance to things
accepted as normal isn’t for the sake of rebellion. God has placed
the desire for more in you and is stirring you and others but
rebellion is not, nor will it ever be, sanctioned by God.
Go, but remember
where you came from because your goal isn’t to get away from the
Church, it’s to broaden the understanding of those not willing to
believe until they see, to bring them to the places you’ve been to
and to help them dream about the possibilities.
