The virtue of curiosity
Someone asked me the other day why I have so many theological ‘irons in the fire’ on my blog. I responded to that question, as I tend to, by being a prat. But after reading the following this morning, I wish I’d given my answer more honest thought:
‘Right down to the present day, theology has continued to be for me a tremendous adventure, a journey of discovery into a, for me, unknown country, a voyage without the certainty of return, a path into the unknown with many surprises and not without disappointments. If I have a theological virtue at all, then it is one that has never hitherto been recognised as such: curiosity’But do you know who wrote these words?
Anyway, I will be away for the next few days on our annual church retreat ...
*hears the sound of holy monastic chants in the background – so remembers to pack his screamevildeath techno music to balance out the holiness*
... so I won’t be blogging till perhaps late Sunday or Monday. The big dilemma that will be causing me considerable distress for the next few hours is the decision as to which books I will have to leave behind :-(
I wish you all a great few days in my absence. And the first person to give the correct answer to the question above will be endowed with the usual flattery and praise.
