Done blogging for now (but stay tuned)

Keyboard with Coffee Break button, work concept
It’s been a two-year stretch. Not bad. I’ve certainly learned a lot. And I feel like we’ve contributed something to the direction the ‘open view’ might take, most importantly that it needn’t degenerate into Process theism nor assume a Kenotic Christology or a Moltmannian/Boydian passibilism. If we’ve managed to convince anyone it’s possible to enjoy the advantages of the open view without having to settle into any of these unsavory alternatives, we’re happy. If not, then it’s still true that we have changed and our own journeys have been immeasurably enriched here. But ministry and vocation make steady blog output difficult right now, and I’d rather shut things down temporarily than post infrequently.

All our site posts will remain available until we decide whether or not to pack things up permanently or get back in the conversation. You can reach Dwayne or me anytime. Look us up on Facebook. We’ll be around.

If you’re just dropping in now to check us out here are a few posts we recommend that get at the heart of our concerns:

God as the Highest Good
Divine experience of beatitude the summum bonum—Part 1 (Parts 2 and 3 as well)
God’s triune actuality the only metaphysical necessity

How and why apatheia can be a good thing
An open apatheia?
Vulnerability the capacity of finitude to bear God’s glory—Part 1 (see Part 2 as well)
What difference can passibilism really make?

How and why apophaticism is important
Eadem est scientia oppositorum
Unspeakably transcended—Part 1 (Part 2, 3 and 4 as well)

Jesus, the Cross, and Scripture
God enters our nightmare
ReKnewing Christology—Part 1 (Parts 2-5 also)
What is the Bible?—Part 1 (Parts 2 and 3 as well)

Our gratitude and thanks to those who have followed us and those who have dropped in now and then to comment. All our love and appreciation.

By the way: Should anyone comment or ask a question about anything we’ve written, we’ll be around for conversation. We’re just not posting anything new for the time being.

May you know a joy that is unspeakable, a peace that passes understanding, a love that surpasses knowing, and a glory that transcends suffering.

    Thank you, Tom, for your good work. You’ve always had interesting, thoughtful articles. Take a break, read, gather your thoughts. Who knows? Perhaps at a future date you’ll want to start a new blog dedicated to a different theological topic.

    Well done, good and faithful servant.
