A thought on theology

Anthony B. Robinson, in, “Teaching Theology in the Church“, writes:

If theology is a way of life and a lens through which life is perceived and not simply a set of propositional statements, then teaching theology in the church should involve reflection on the life of the church–on worship and sacraments, ministry (ordained and lay) and mission. How are these elements of a way of life? What aspects of the gospel do they express? Are these practices forming or transforming us in the image and mind of Christ? What happens to us as we participate in them?

Something for all of us committed to the endeavour of theology and the Church to think on.
