A couple weeks ago I started a (paper) journal for my Th.M. thesis. It is intended as a place for ponderings, research notes, gathered bits, etc. When the bits coalesce sufficiently, I will post them here. Here are some initial questions to ponder:

  • Is there one biblical ecclesiology? If so, what are its essential elements and how might those elements present in various times and cultures? [arose after re-skimming An Introduction to Ecclesiology by Karkkainen]
  • How does the nature of the Trinity relate to the nature of humanity? What effect does this relationship have on the nature of the ecclesia? [arose while skimming Volf's After Our Likeness in preparation for an upcoming Contemporary Theology session]

NOTE: This is a rumination ("1. The act of pondering; meditation. 2. The act or process of chewing cud." American Heritage Dictionary) in search of synergy ("1. The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.")
