Jason T. Smith, gifted in weaving together cultural ideas and theological metaphors, spoke to us on September 4th.
Kujenga means “to build” in Swahili. In Kenya, both Swahili and English are official languages. And Leslie Scott, an Englishwoman born in Kenya brought a derivative of the word kujenga to the western world: Jenga. After her family moved to Ghana, she packaged and sold the family game.
Jason goes on to talk about a Mythbuster’s Jr episode tasked with whether the whole foundaion of a Jenga tower could be removed while leaving the building standing? He then turns the question back to us as the church, referring to the building up of the body of Christ in 1 Corinthians 3:9-17. He asks, “What is so foundational to what we are as Christians that removing it would cause what we’ve built to collapse?
