New blog discovery: Faith and Theology

by Richard on December 13, 2005

Every once in a while you come across a blog and say: Wow! How come I haven’t found this before?

Faith and Theology is just such a blog.

It describes itself as “a blog for theological scholarship and contemporary theological reflection”, and I’m pleased to say that it does exactly what it says on the tin.

The downside of this is that it’s another great blog I’ll need to read, and one that will be more demanding than most.

But if you’ve any interest in theology at all, this is one you need to be reading.

Thanks, Richard, for introducing us to this blog. All I want now is the gift of more time to do all this blogging! A quick dip, and I liked the post ‘Why is theology boring’ - a subject touched on in Tom Stuckey’s Presidential speech in June.

Incidentally, thanks too for challenging me to tackle sudoku, because it was a great blessing in hospital. I will, however, have to discipline myself now not to give in to its temptation when there is work to be done!

Sorry to hear you’ve been in hospital, Olive. Hope you’re better now.

Thanks, Richard. My third (below the waist) angioplasty went well, but I have come out the worse for wear because of lack of sleep! When you are over 80, they assume that you have lost all your faculties by then! So you are put in a ward where all the patients are, for that reason, very noisy and difficult to deal with - especially at night! Opposite me there was a 99 year-old lady who was a sweet old dear during the day - but drove me crazy at night. In the day she would say to the nurse, ‘In the morning when I wake up, will you bring me my telegram?’ At night, in a loud voice, she never stopped calling, ‘God, why don’t you come for me? Please help me! You know that I know you, Lord! Please come and take me!’ I longed to get out of bed and pray with her to comfort her, but had to settle for praying for her from my bed. (It’s a sobering thought that there are so few years before I am that age and will be preparing to meet my Lord! Which makes me comment that, with our mainly elderly congregations we hear very little about such preparation.) The other patients were much more disruptive ……….
