Congress: A View from Here

It has been a wild week so far. Here I am in beautiful Victoria (BC) enjoying the scenery and an amazing academic conference. This morning I heard a brilliant paper on the theologian's task of articulating the experience of God in a society where belief in God is suspect (at best). He was advocating a vulnerability as the way forward, that we need to allow God to be God and not reign God in through our efforts to articulate our experience. Sounds complicated, but the simple message was we need to humbly approach our work because God is indeed mystery beyond our words.

I'll post more details (and maybe a few pictures) next week. But just wanted to let you know that it has been a very encouraging time. God certainly resides at the heart of some amazing projects.
