Excerpt

Excerpt from: The Grace of Catastrophe

When we are wounded, hurting, crying in our pain, our theology-what we believe about God, about His kingdom-becomes suddenly very significant, very practical. We have no room for arrogance, the arrogance of certainty, when the unimaginable happens to us. Theology, for the struggling disciple, is more than theory, more than a stimulating topic of discussion. It is more than the text of Sunday school curricula, more than the subject of a sermon. Theology is the truth that hauls us up out of the chaos and into the place of comfort in God's arms. It is the message that gives us courage to keep on living when everything in our lives seems to be decaying and deteriorating. It is the truth of God, revealed in His Word, spoken in our hearts by His Spirit, lived in front of us by the incarnate Son that lifts us up. Without it, "we remain little people with little concerns who live little lives and die little deaths."
