Theology

I do not have a lot of time to blog today, but don’t want to miss a day as so far I have managed something every day since I started, on December 5th last year. I know, it’s only January, but even so that makes this the 48th post.

I came across this in a book by Clemens Sedmak entitled Doing Local Theology and found it interesting.

Theology is about being honest to reality. And the face of reality can be painful and ugly. It is the face of slavery and famine, cancer and war, tears and blood. We do theology in the middle of the storm. There is no genuine theology without wounds. Following Jesus has always been an invitation not to be afraid of wounds and of getting wounded. Doing theology is also a way of becoming vulnerable and wounded.
