This semester I have three classes, all introduction courses. I am being introduced to the New Testament, Theological Reflection, and Quaker Life. It has been absolutely amazing to watch how the classes overlap and intersect. My head is spinning with all the thoughts fighting for attention and I have wanted to post several times about everything I'm thinking about. But it's all moving so fast and I never seem to find the time to sit down and articulate my thoughts. So, here I am, not pressuring myself to have the perfect post, but instead to set down a few ideas for further investigation...
The ideas about suffering found in 1 Peter 2:13-25.
The idea of "the preferential option for the poor" that comes from Liberation Theology.
