What does "Kairos" Mean?


From Wikipedia:

Kairos (καιρός) is an ancient Greek word meaning the "right or opportune 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 in between", a moment of undetermined period of time in which "something" special happens.
[...]
Kairos time is usually perceived as a time of crisis. One has the choice of danger or opportunity, a chance to build something new out of the old.
Kairos time bridges the tearing down of the old way with the building of a new way.

The context is that from Ancient Greece, and has absolutely nothing to do with Christianity's assimilation of the term at all. In other words, if you come as a missionary beware: You will find nothing convertable here. Full stop.
