Your time as a caterpillar has expired. Your wings are ready. Step into the fire of self-discovery. This fire will not burn you; it will only burn what you are not. While they say that a rolling stone gathers no moss, in fact as we roll through life we gather an abundance of experiences. Our reflections on those experiences provides the basis for our perceptions and those perceptions help us craft a sense of meaning for our lives. Theological reflection is something we all do informally and often nonconsciously. It is driven by our need to make meaning of reality and our lives. I hope my comments will help you become more aware of and intentional about your own theologizing. If you’re going to follow me, it might be important to know whom you’re following. Check out my bio on the menu under who is this man you are following? I write from a Christian perspective because that is my own history. I deeply believe that there are many valid and important perspectives on the topics I am addressing. I know that Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, and Islam, among others, offer helpful ways of dealing with the topics to which I am attending. I feel I would be less than honest if I attempted to speak on behalf of those traditions even though I will from time to time offer quotations from these other traditions. I also freely own the fact that many traditions within the Christian community will consider me to be a heretic. If there is no heresy, there is only stultified orthodoxy which will very quickly be irrelevant to peoples’ daily living. Thoughtful heresy has the power to transform irrelevant statements of ancient truths.
