Hurricane Katrina

Continuing the discussion of whether or not theology is boring, Jim West has offered these sobering reflections on why theologians (not theology itself) are boring. Perhaps Jim is right to judge those of us who have kept silent about the current disaster in New Orleans. Rightly or wrongly, for my own part I sometimes feel that it is better to keep silent. Sometimes there are no words except prayer.

The day after I began this blog, bombs were exploded in London. At that time, too, it seemed better to pray than to speak. Theology is useful and important; at times it is even interesting. But sometimes even theologians have nothing more to say than: “Come, Creator Spirit. Come.”
