God-talk

A fellow seminarian of mine has ruffled some feathers over on his site pomomusings. While I am not too worried about his salvation :-), apparantly some are concerned about his wife's because of her choice of wording in her statement of faith. I made a comment that her statement seemed pretty trinitarian to me, so what was the deal.

The deal is that a bunch of people have their panties in a bunch about her referring to God with a feminine pronoun. I actually found her statement to be balanced and referring to God in a comprehensive way and not limiting the Triune God to our conception of humanity/gender/etc...

So what do you all think? Should our panties be in a bunch? Or can we allow ourselves the freedom to conceive of the Triune God as one we can know in both masculine and feminine ways?

Restructuring, revisiting, revisioning

Hello blog world,

After over a 1/2 year long break, I'm cautiously reentering the blogosphere. I guess I've been away for several reason, but probably the greatest one was lack of direction for this blog. So I think I'm going to try to something a little different. Instead of ranting or doing silly blog things, I'm going to focus my posts on the multitude of "hats" that wear at this point in my life.

For example, one day I might reflect on my life as a mom. Another day I might chat about being a social worker. Or I might talk about how my baptist roots and my presbyterian present like to spar with each other from time to time.

Quite honestly I don't know if ANYONE is even checking this blog anymore but if you happen to stop by, I hope you find a more focused and fun experience!

It's good to be back.
