CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on Faith for the Years of Winter… ©
When I was in college, and in campus ministry, and I suspect even now, old people would talk about college students, and how they “did nothing but party,” and say, “Wait until you’re in the real world…”
By “real world,” of course, they meant whatever world they were in at the moment. A lot of folks can’t accept any world as real but their own.
There are a lot of real worlds. Whatever world you are in at the moment is your real world. Yes, you won’t be in it forever. There will be other worlds. The only way you are not in the real world is if you fail to live in the present, waiting for some other world.
