A Few Items
Jane Spahr was recently cleared by a Presbyterian court for her role in performing a marriage for a lesbian couple. It's is a victory for her, for moral conscience, and for loving commitments. But the court had to ignore the language of the Presbyterian constitution.
Yesterday I had a chance to sub for a junior high gym class. It was disconcerting and gratifying at the same time. Seeing kids being picked on, much like my own experience with gym, was hard but being in a position to stop it and provide some consolation was good. It makes me wonder how kids survive that time period in their lives.
I also ended up leading a workshop on the Labyrinth to a local pagan group. It was a good discussion, but I think they may have been astounded that I'm a Christian. Given how the religion is viewed, especially in a bible belt region like ours, it was a teachable moment.
I ended up responding to Chris Tessone's post on the question of whether process theology was compatible with the idea of the transcendence of God. It depends on how one views transcendence, but I argue that the two can be linked up. Been busy this week so I apologize for the sparse postings.
