I’ll be posting more on this site later, but this is the first and this is my introduction of me to you. I am an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, and I am currently serving a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) church. The idea behind this blog is for me to simply express my theological opinions and share my faith-walk, such as it is.
I may get fancy with my words and thoughts, I may get really simple, but hey, it’s my blog.
In a very real way it is my attempt to reclaim my own theological and liberal Christian roots in an era when Conservative is what the general public thinks of when they think, Christian. I am a Christian and I am a Liberal–NOT A PROGRESSIVE which to me is a watering down of the idea of Liberal to make it more palatable to the conservative mind-set. Aaaack!!
I have a Ph. D. in Theology and the Arts, which gives me a license to think. This blog is about me thinking.
Christianity has devolved into an “us and them” mentality. Us Liberals/those conservatives; us humans/the rest of creation; creation as six-day-science/creation as big bang and ongoing; us right thinking Christians/the rest of the faith-filled world. The list goes on, but you get it.
I also write music and perform it as a rockabilly in bars and at festivals. I also build guitars. I also am a photographer. I am a lot of things, but for this blog, I will be a practicing theologian.
I hope you enjoy or hate or whatever my next postings which I think will be, starting next week, on Fridays. As per my Blog title, will have either poems, theological/spiritual reflections, or a prayer for something. Thanks, should you wish to follow on this journey, Hilary
