“I’m not a theologian; I’m just trying to follow Jesus.”
Well, friend, you’re half right. I’m sure you are trying to follow Jesus and I hope you find encouragement here for your walk. But if you make the statement above, then you’re half right.
You ARE a theologian. Perhaps you’re not an academic theologian (neither am I, I’m a pastoral theologian), but as a Christian, you engage with theology with every action you take. All your beliefs and behaviors are engaging with theology.
Because of that, we face a collision every day: a collision of life and theology. A disconnect between the way things are and the way things are supposed to be. A conflict between life and theology.
I walk in the shoes you are walking in. With you, we walk together where life meets theology. Glad you’re with us for the journey.
