Glad you are doing well. I assume church duties? I've read a little Kierkegaard, definitely Fear and Trembling. I think a bit of something else. I don't remember much though. A big focus of mine has been the atonement lately. I started a book but then stopped. I've been trying to focus exclusively on scripture for now.
Follow up.....Work has been busy with some big projects but 2 of them are about to end in October so that will be nice. Working a lot of extra hours lately. One nice work thing is that we no longer have to wear ties. :banana: It's a small thing in the grand scheme but still really nice. I've also finally started some volunteer work so that's keeping me busy one night a week.
Still reading but taking a bit of a break from more serious theology. Reading some other things right now. Also listening to podcasts more lately. One is taking an in-depth look at the Harry Potter series so really enjoying that. There are some good LOTR podcasts that I want to dive into next. Along with re-reading the books.
Reading it again, it feels more treacly than I remembered :chuckle: but the idea in it is sound, and well worth your revising it into a more eloquent funeral sermon. :) Truth to tell, I haven't looked at that dash between the dates in the same way since.
I can imagine the experience-dense, along the whole of human life from beginning to end and all that's in between. That reminds me of something I read once, it was a poem I think, about the dash between birth and death dates on a tombstone. About the significance of that little — which holds within it an entire life's existence; every experience, every thought, every emotion from the first day to the last.
In the past when talking about process theology one concern you had is that it couldn't account for a full eschatology. Couldn't confidently affirm God's victory. I listened to a Homebrewed Christianity podcast where that topic came up briefly. It was a discussion he had with Philip Clayton. Thought I'd mention it in case you want to listen.
