Dancing on the Head of a Pin

There is a legend of St Thomas Aquinas asking "How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?" At this blog we ask all questions dealing with our faith and spirituality. Some are down to earth, rubber meets the road questions, while others are more lofty...like, how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

Theologia Habitus Est

If I were to claim a motto, it would most likely be the above Latin phrase, "theologia habitus est" - theology is a way of life. The word "theology" comes from two Greek words, "theos" (God) and logos (word). Theology, therefore, is words about God. The task of theology involves thinking, speaking, and writing about God. When should we think about God? When should we speak about God? When should we write about God? The goal is that this task would permeate our life in such a way that it is second nature; it is a way of life. This is one of the reasons this blog exists - to engage words about God daily. This blog serves one purpose in two ways - it hopefully promotes your thoughts about God and it helps me focus on a habitual engagement of the Divine. Theology is not something reserved for seminary graduates or people in long, flowing robes - it is a task for each of us. With God's help, it will be a task we seek out as it because our way of life.
