Plough Quarterly No. 29 - Beyond Borders
Plough Quarterly No. 29 - Beyond Borders
we move beyond borders that divide us without losing our identity?
the past decade,
yearning for rootedness, for being part of a story bigger than oneself, has
flared up as a cultural force to be reckoned with. There's much to affirm in this
desire to belong to a people. That means pride in all that is admirable in the
nation to which we belong - and repentance for its historic sins.
focus on national identity,
course, can lead to darker places. The new nationalists, who in Western
countries often appeal to the memory of a Christian past, applaud when

maintaining group or national identity require borders guarded with lethal
answer isn't artificial schemes for universal brotherhood,
such as a universal language. Our differences
are what make a community human. Might the true ground for community lie deeper
even than shared nationality or language? After all, the biblical vision of
humankind's ultimate future has "every tribe and language and people and
nation" coming together - beyond all borders but still as themselves.
