The Bible in Miniature: A Tale of Two Trees


In the beginning, there's a choice.
It's a choice between two trees.
Only one of them is called 'Life.'
.
.
.
'Choose Life.'
.
.
.
'Choose Life.'
.
.
.
'Choose Life.'
.
.
.
In the finale, only one tree remains.
'Life.'
It has been chosen.

Metanoia by MGMT

This week I learnt a Greek word.
Cos we all need a few Greek words in our lives.
'Metanoia.'
It literally means 'Change of Mind.'
A U-Turn.
A 180.
In English it's the rather intimidating word 'Repent.'

So imagine my surprise when the very same day I found (through the wonder of Spotify) that possibly the most popular band of 2009, MGMT, have a song called 'Metanoia'.
Shedding some light on our often confused concept of repentence, MGMT sing:

'Metanoia, reshaping the world
It can teach you
And reprogram you
It can show you the flood
That's trapped inside'
