I try to take theology seriously. It is helpful that I enjoy reading theology and listening to boring lectures by theologians and philosophers. However, I am deeply committed to the idea that theology is not for the ivory towers, but must be imbedded into the worshiping community. I mean, as much as I have respect for people like Volf, Vanhoozer, and Hauerwas, 99% of our churchgoers will never read them. It’s up to those of us who do read such theologians to do the work of translation for the rest of the laity.
So, I consider my work this week as a game leader for pre-k through 6th graders during VBS a theological task and try to take it seriously.
And tonight, I received this question during our debrief time after our game:
How did the devil get red?
