As the church, we have a variety of ways to relate to our faith. When we wash our hands, we think of baptism. When we eat toast in the morning, we think of the bread broken and meal eaten in Emmaus. When we see a cross on a necklace or a fish on the back of a car, we think of Jesus dying on a cross, we think of Jesus feeding the multitudes. We sing and listen to hymns on Sunday morning. For many of us, these things have become so internalized that we hardly notice them anymore. For others, these things are only just beginning to have meaning in our lives. This process of thinking through these significant aspects of our faith is what we call theology. Theology is an activity done in a variety of different circumstances and by anyone who loves Jesus. Whether you are a mechanic, high school student, pastor, nurse, or academic, there are still things to learn about our faith.
The Roundtable blog affords us space to think through some of these topics. If you are interested in theology or learning more about your faith and the issues that we as the Evangelical Covenant Church are concerned with, it might be worth the time to check out this blog.
