Don’s comment today inspired me to re-post my version of his favourite hymn.
#357 My Hope is Built on Nothing Less (Pomo version 2.4.6)
From the Skinny Postmodern Hymnbook ,based on post in 2001
“My hope [acknowledging mystery/rejecting secular rationalism]
is built on nothing less
than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. . .[historically narrational over propositional] I dare not trust the sweetest frame [suspicion of construct/text/logic systems] but wholly [holistically interconnected, rejection of gnostic dualism, systemic thinking] lean [experientially] on Jesus name. [authority source transcending visible human institutions] On Christ the solid rock I stand [post-foundationalist] All other ground is sinking sand [deconstructionalist] All other ground is sinking sand.” [value judgment based on communal experience of screwing up our lives when we place our trust in secondary sources and not primary]
