One of the best definitions of "theology" I know is from St. Anselm: Theology is "faith seeking understanding," i.e., the continuing process of trying to put our relationship with God (our "faith") into appropriate words and concepts, so that we can think about it and talk about it. We ALL need to participate in this. The role of "Parish Theologian" is to facilitate that process, to shape Adult Formation events that assist in it, and to help the congregation and its leadership reflect on our life together in light of our faith.
Since beginning this role in May of 2021, Denny Clark has facilitated learning opportunities related to Geography of the Holy Land, King David’s Leadership, Science, Religion, and Faithful Living, The Letter of James, Becoming a Living Kidney Donor, Weathering the Apocalyptic Storm, and Affordable Housing Crisis in Columbus. Recordings of many of these sessions are available through Zoom. Contact Denny for more information.
