God Unbound : Theology in the Wild
Theology, says Brian McLaren, is at its best when it is in conversation with the wild world that flourishes beyond our walls and outside our windows and cities. In God Unbound, McLaren follows his love of nature all the way to the Galapagos Islands. There, he pays close attention to the flora and fauna around him but also to what is happening within him, how the natural world awakens his soul in a way that organized religion cannot.
The result is a sparkling and engrossing theology which refuses to remain indoors.
Creativity, Lent & Easter, Spiritual GrowthCreated: 2013 Words: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 Background: This piece is a celebration of the Easter message, that Christ is risen. The words are illuminated in Spring colours, with reminders of the season, flowers and birds in flight, intermingled with blood red flowing from the cross where the wounds of Christ would have been. The cross is deliberately empty to remind us of the resurrection and there is a shape around it that echoes a holding cross to remind us that we can ‘hold on’ to His promises.
