In this Faithfully? sermon series, we wanted to tackle some “doctrines” of Christianity so that we have a deeper understanding of how they came about, and explore where we go from there.
“Theology is faith seeking understanding of God.”
I believe theology has as much to do with knowledge about God as it is with our relationship with God.
Knowing God is not just intellectual, but also relational. And the two are connected. Theology is sometimes thought of as just theory – illustrated with the phrase “How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?” that is often used to describe wasting time debating topics of no practical value, or on questions whose answers hold little consequence, while more urgent concerns accumulate.
Our faith journey is about seeking to know God, and to know of God. It is a continuing journey that I don’t think has an end – for us as individuals, and for us as humanity. We are always growing deeper in our understanding of God, and our deeper relationship with God.
This Sunday, Wendy will be sharing on the Bible. How do we approach the holy text that is central to our faith? How do we interpret it faithfully? Please join us as we continue our conversation faithfully.
