An afterthought to earlier

Somehow it occurred to me only this afternoon that... it's not New Zealand I'm struggling with - it's Christchurch.

The reason I'm feeling this religious debate so strongly at the moment is because I am living in an old "heritage" town - Christchurch - where there are long parental lineages and strong roots in Christianity, traditions are upheld and now, after the earthquakes, continuity is important not only because people have been through a lot and want stability, but because there is already plenty of change architecture-wise, and community-wise.

If I were still in Wanaka, I'd probably be oblivious to the fact.

And it does actually help understand it...
