So I am finally playing Heather’s Theology Game, a weekly challenge to think about something faith related.

This week’s topic, The Commitments of Theology.

Finish these sentences.  (And explain why you say what you do, if you like giving explanations!)

  • Theology exists to ________________.
  • If someone reads my theological writing and only remembers one thing afterwards, I want it to be ___________________.
  • No matter what topic we’re dealing with, theologians must take into account ___________, because we ignore it at our peril.

Here are mine . . .

  • Theology exists to equip us to make wise choices.
  • If someone reads my theological writing and only remembers one thing afterwards, I want it to be that the chaos and ambiguity of one’s spiritual journey are not to be conquered, but wisely navigated.
  • No matter what topic we’re dealing with, theologians must take into account context and the subcontext, because we ignore it at our peril.
