This blog is dedicated to the sharing of experiences of life for those that have, or are daring to take their thinking, and hence their experience beyond defined institutional boundaries. The word ‘beyond’ is intentionally used to ensure this is not to exclude the experiences within the boundaries of institutions, but recognizing institutions do not define the whole experience of life, but just a portion. Life doesn’t just happen inside the walls, but much more so outside. The institutions considered here are primarily, but not limited to religious ones that shape our belief system and ultimately determines who we become. , “..as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he ” (prv 23:7). Apart from religious systems, man has a way of creating other institutional systems to maintain order in various aspects of life in the society. while the motive in almost all the cases is initially to serve the needs of the people, as the institutions grow , they get a corporate life of their own and become masters of the people.
The institutions of Jesus’ days on earth attempted to confine him within their boundaries, but they could not hold Him. This shall also be the case for those that seek to be His true followers for, “…the servant is not greater than his lord…” (Jn 15:20)
