The concept of Centerpoint Christianity briefly stated is:

Christianity from the centerpoint outward.

Christianity from the climax forward.

This blog constitutes concepts for a new view of Christianity that begins with what is foundational and moves forward from that point. It is based on the assumption that we are being pulled towards something unseen and pushed from a place that once was.

What Centerpoint Christianity attempts to do is bypass some of the constraints imposed by metanarratives by using the life of Christ and particularly the climactic actions of Christ as beginning points.

It supports the conviction that God is essentially timeless. From this beginning point we endeavor to move outward from the definitive moment of the parousia (visitation) of Christ and forward to the future which functions as a type of magnet to "what can be--and is coming".

When we begin at the life of Christ and move outward as from the centerpoint of a web, rather than in a linear timeline of history, another wide picture emerges.

to the unsuspecting reader

From the cross like a web

Backward forward out and around

Weave me the story

The old, old story

That one day my love might abound

What astounds me is that which you so lightly dust over so deeply imbeds itself like a wedge in my soul. You pass by…while I choose to stay; I cannot help but dwell here to this place where you have led me. Even as you skip away to the next adventure, the next ‘new thing’ my mind thinks ever harder about these things we’ve come to see. They were but a passing fancy to you but they are life and living to me. These thoughts are not clouds passing by me; they are thunderstorms settling in that will rage the whole night long. I hope morning comes in time. I hope there is a rainbow on the other side of the storm. I hope I can make it to a peaceful rest—but I sense as the clouds grow dark that I like Robert Frost in this gentle poem, and Jesus in his passionate climb, have many miles to go before I sleep.

I suppose I shouldn’t marvel, after all, who wants to look at these things.
