Thought of the Day
Boy oh boy I'm a busy bee at the moment. I would point readers to the terrific discussion in the previous post, but tonight I have no time to join in. I can only offer a thought that occurred to me as I was entering Tübingen library today:
If a murderous alien life force were to suddenly possess my body, armed with a golf club I could seriously dent the living theological halls of fame in a pretty short space of time. Imagine it: Jüngel down with a nine iron in his head, Moltmann a sandwedge, Küng, Stuhlmacher, Hengel ... enough to get my face on the Church Times front page as the most hated person ever! Of course, I might just have very bad luck and take a few out accidently in my Audi (I fall asleep at the wheel and curve into the Theologicum were the aforementioned greats happen to be unfortunately gathered together).
Of course, all this is less likely to happen than every single one of my readers winning million pound/dollar/euro lotteries every day for the rest of their lives. But such a detail aside, such was my idle thinking strolling across the lawn to the Universitätsbibliothek Tübingen this pleasant afternoon.
