How does God act in this world?
a new life emerging pointed out this powerful article The fragile mortality of God by Julie Bogart this morning. I have to agree with one of the over-all points that we often have to come up with our own theology to explain God and our relationship to/with God. There are so many contradictions and questions in the usual explanations about God and God's actions/non-actions in the world. Can we explain away the contradictions? Can we live in the tensions of the paradoxes? Does God really stir His/Her finger in the pot that is the earth? This article lays out some hard issues that I don't always want to think about.
