Fr. Stephen Freeman has a very good post on the power of metaphors on his blog Glory To God for All Things.
It is called Watch Your Metaphors.
Please go there and read it. Father puts into words what I have felt for some time. The West is slowly re-examining its use of metaphor when talking about salvation and the eternal state of humanity. This has been going on for some time now, and offers both the East and teh West an opportunity to see where we can serve one another toward fulfilling Christ's prayer that we be one and He and the father are one (John 17).
Offer your comments as well.
