a friend of mine is in her last year of a nursing degree. she does all her research for papers online, rarely does she use a book. why? in her words, the world of medicine is progressing at a far greater rate than it ever has so the way we understand the human body is in constant flux. new information, new modus operandi, same body. so my questions to myself: “should theology be any different?” and “why is the suggestion of new thinking and approach often received as a threat?” and finally “is there really room for an evolution of thought/theology within the church?”

I have been thinking about this a lot lately actually, trying to understand the balance of an evolving theology. So maybe some posts in the future on that.

  • great links again. Fair Trade chocolate is a important issue.

    I’m so glad to see there are others that agree we need to reconsider the lone paster, my friend and I talk a lot about the “cult of personality” that many churches shape around.

    Also, interesting response to Tony, thanks for that link.

  • Thanks, man. I even bought the Yep program.
