Real life theology

"The Dance of Life"

I don't think that the sort of theology that ties up every loose end or hands people unexamined certainties is very helpful. So you can see why I appreciate this:

Life isn't like a book. Life isn't logical or sensible or orderly. Life is a mess most of the time. And theology must be lived in the midst of that mess.

-- Charles Caleb Colton (1780 - 1832)
