Kairos (καιρός) is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment). The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While the former refers to chronological or sequential time, the latter signifies a time between, a moment of indeterminate time in which something special happens.  (wikipedia.com)

Cairo (/ˈkaɪroʊ/ kye-roh ; Arabic: القاهرة‎) is the capital of Egypt and the largest city in the Arab world and Africa. Itsmetropolitan area is the 16th largest in the world. Located near the Nile Delta,[1][2] it was founded in 969 AD. Nicknamed “the city of a thousand minarets” for its preponderance of Islamic architecture, Cairo has long been a centre of the region’s political and cultural life. Cairo was founded by the Fatimid dynasty in the 10th century AD, but the land composing the present-day city was the site of national capitals whose remnants remain visible in parts of Old Cairo. Cairo is also associated with Ancient Egypt as it is close to the ancient cities of Memphis, Giza and Fustat which are near the Great Sphinx and the pyramids of Giza. (wikipedia.com)

 

I hope this blog bears witness to the ways I see glimpses of God’s time–that time when time as I know it seems to stop, when everything seems to be right with the world, when I feel like I am walking on holy ground, when I feel like I see a glimpse of the kingdom of God–revealed in this ancient, amazing city.  Hence, Cairos.
