So our first paper in “Thinking about God” requires us to define theology, we’ve got five pages. I’m going around in circles. Look at some of my first sentence attempts.
Theology is expressed reasoned conviction about the God of Jesus to a reality in which someone finds themselves in.
Theology is anyone’s expressed reasoned conviction about the relationship between the God of Jesus and the reality in which they find themselves, which furthers acts of faith
Theology is all responses to God as revealed through the Bible, tradition, experience, tempered by reason and reflection.
Theology is the God of Jesus in relation to the reality in which we find ourselves expressed by anyone.
Theology is reflection on the tension between faith in the God of Jesus and the reality as we know it.
