The “Theology Church”

If I’m not mistaken, our church is known around town as the ‘theology church.’  I don’t say that to pat my own back.  After all, taking theology seriously is no guarantee of spiritual fruitfulness and Christlike maturity.  Being known for faith, hope, or love might be safer than a reputation for theological erudition.  Still, all things considered, I’ll take ‘theology church’ over the ‘church that recycles batteries,’ the ‘church with Xboxes in the youth wing,’ or the ‘church with the gnarly fog machine.’
