"I know Jesus said that faith is like a mustard seed. But I think the analogy works for Christian actions we take in faith – like working for justice. We step out in faith to do good works with God not knowing what the end result will be. But we trust and persevere, and sometimes we get a constructive conversation with a major Canadian grocery chain!"
"It seems that social justice is like Ed Miliband's spine... I've heard about it, but never witnessed it in action."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
