Re-sponsible, Re-mold, Re-create, Re-deem.
My blog is therapeutic for me in many instances. It helps me process different theological thoughts that are bouncing around in my head. In a way it’s recreation for me. Recreation in its origins means to re-create. To make something a-new that has changed.
Many things on our earth, which were either created directly by God or created by God’s creation – man, have changed from their original intent . Institutions, organizations, politics, art, education, medicine, healthcare, the planet and so many other things have gone adrift from people “in charge” who felt no obligation to be held responsible (able to respond) to a higher truth than their own selfish pursuits. (Tragedy of the Commons) We’re co-creators with God and with each of our own kingdoms we need to be able to: be re-sponsable, re-mold, re-create, and re-deem what was meant to bring glory to God.
Last night I had a great evening out with Tad talking about life and theology over nachos, fine malt beverages, and a very tasty Rocky Patel cigar (it was their decade series, box press, and I highly recommend it!). My life right now is consumed with work, travel, and soccer; and last night was re-creation for me during a time of crazy busy-ness. So all this to say that as these thoughts keep bouncing around in my head I will be more regular at posting some of these thoughts. I just sometimes need a good strong cup of mental coffee to keep me regular.
