Are you a Dog Theologian or a Cat Theologian?

A few weeks back I read this interesting piece in the News Journal about an upcoming series on Cat and Dog Theology.

I decided to check it out and I'm so glad I did.

First, I've met some truly great people at Newark United Methodist Church (the classes are held there on Sunday nights). This group has welcomed me and my family with open arms. They are willing to indulge some of my thoughts, observations, and theories -- and they have some incredible insight they are willing to share.

Second, the material is great. I would like to think that I regularly adhere to Dog Theology, but I have to admit the times I find myself acting more like a Cat (check out the material to find out what I'm talking about).

This insight is pretty remarkable. We spend alot of time seeking and hoarding blessings, waiting for the right words to make us feel good. We've heard of the great commission but we feel that's for missionaries, not us. We don't recognize the opportunities that we see every day -- at work, or even going out with the guys after work. We need to let our light shine, but we think of that more like a beacon in the church than like flashlights hunting out the dark places. We expect people to come to us where we're hoarding our teachings, our blessings, and our good news.
