Tele-theology

By Belinda

We wrestle complex issues through.

Although miles apart, phone to ear, two heads bow over sacred page; searching; reasoning; weighing the intent of words.

Who is he, this One that pursues us with such love?

What does it mean to know him, love him in return, be in relationship with him?

Where is the balance between grace and carelessness?

Once found, can we ever be lost?

Holy pages rustle, turned by fingers of flesh.

On this we agree--in the whole counsel of God lies Truth and godly Wisdom.

Did God bend his ear to earth and listen in? Listen to our tele-theology?

I think he did. I think he was on the party line.

Matthew 5:2-6 (New International Version)

2 and he began to teach them saying:

3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are those who mourn,

for they will be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek,

for they will inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

for they will be filled.

This post really spoke to me. Thank you. I often hope that God is listening to our struggles to understand and is pleased by our efforts.
