Christ as Archetype

Abstract:

I want to start this article by stating that what I have to say is both provisional and contextually limited. It is provisional because it has to do with my own spiritual and psychological processes, and these are constantly in a state of flux. I am offering these suggestions as a way forward for Christianity, and as a link with Transpersonal Psychology, not because I think they will meet everybody's needs, or even be welcome by a good many people, but because it reflects something of my journey. If what I say has any resonance with you the reader, helps in any way to make sense of the Christian story in the 21st century, then I am happy that this is the case. If, on the other hand, it has no resonance, if it helps neither those who are Christian nor those who come from a more ‘secular’ psychological perspective, then it should simply be disregarded. As both a priest and a psychologist I struggle with models and metaphors to help give meaning to and make sense out of my life. I am not trying to espouse some new doctrine to be written in stone, heaven forbid, both theology and psychology have more than enough of those already. My criteria is simple and utilitarian, if it is useful us it, if not, discard it.

Abstract:

The Greeks knew a thing or two: unity works, for one. I last recommended a story with all its action on one day. In Robertson Davies' masterpiece, The Deptford Trilogy, a single event on page one binds three characters together over sixty years.
