  • 2 Assumptions: 1) Theology needs to be freed from the academy. <br /> <br /> Seminary conversation: &#x201C;theology should only be done by those trained in the field.&#x201D; <br />
  • 2nd Assumption: &#x201C;Theology, as a FUNCTION of the Christian church, must serve the NEEDS of the church.&#x201D; <br />
  • Why am I here? Not a PhD or a student - tho I am married to one. <br /> <br /> No idea - ask Tripp. <br /> <br /> But I think because I&#x2019;ve tried to live this out. <br />
  • Those of us who are PRACTITIONERS need to get theology OUT of the academy, INTO the church, and then OUT of the church and INTO the world... <br /> <br /> Two examples: Pomomusings & Beer. <br />
  • Graduated college / moved to Idaho. <br />
  • Not a LOT going on there.... <br />

  • I was hungry for theological conversation. <br /> <br /> And now - I desire to create spaces to serve as host / facilitator of online convos. <br />
  • Does it always work? No... <br /> <br /> Misunderstanding, confrontation, anonymity, hurt. <br /> <br /> It&#x2019;s easy to be an ass online. <br />
  • But even with that possibility, I&#x2019;ve seen good/deep convos come from the blog. <br />
  • 1st Series: Kingdom of God <br /> <br /> Muse on the Kingdom of God. No more direction than that. <br />

  • Could we cover the same discussion topics in a SS class? <br /> <br /> Sure - but you can&#x2019;t get rid of class/teacher/student feeling <br /> <br /> The &#x201C;aesthetic&#x201D; of it - feeling of it - is so different. We&#x2019;re all in it together, working together to figure this out. <br />
