Theological Thursdays at Buffalo Rising

Even though reaching out to people through the Internet is not at all what I imagined ministry would be like, I have been called the spiritual adviser of Buffalo Rising more than once.  Unfortunately, my seminary didn’t offer a blogging/hyperlocal media class, so I have to figure out what that means and how to do it on my own.

But here’s a start–theology, like politics, is best done locally.  So what I would like to do, each Thursday (or so), is a take a theological concept, and look at what it might mean for the neighborhoods of Buffalo.

And though I am approaching this as a follower of Jesus, other perspectives are encouraged/welcomed.  When I am able, I will do my best to offer multiple perspectives, but–in all honesty–I have a long way to go in understanding my own faith, so people of different traditions will make this a richer conversation by sharing in the comments.

The goal of this series is to encourage reflection that will lead to our neighborhoods growing healthier in all ways.  It is not to bash the one who believes (or doesn’t) differently, nor to convert anyone, but to have a conversation that will create understanding of the ways that people believe (or don’t) in our neighborhoods.  I guess what I’m trying to say is, “I’m going to play nice,” and I invite you to do the same.

First up (and coming later this evening)–Epistemology in the Elmwood Village–the ways of theological inquiry.
